It's not that bad.  The animation does start on Ctrl-release and only when
no other key was pressed between Ctrl-press and Ctrl-release..  Try Ctrl-down,
shift-down,up and Ctrl-up -> no animation.  (Gnome 2.8)

Oh, you are right.  I just tried to omit the --with-gtk part and without
this the popup's toplevel entries work for me.  Choosing  a buffer after
C-mouse-1 did work, some submenu ala C-mouse-3 did not work.  Strange
thing..  I'll try your patch and report back..
