No. I wasn't aware of that. With the default setting, the user would have to
move the mouse and release it within 350 milliseconds for it to have any
effect. I  think must be quite hard to do.

My preferences remained unchanged but I also think it must be confusing for
a novice user. Before I was aware of the time limit, I didn't understand why
clicking mouse-1 sometimes popped to a new buffer and other times didn't.
