Actually, I've only seen such behavior on Mac OS X where they have to deal
with 1-button mouses (and where this context menu is also available (without
delay) on mouse-3, if you have a 3-button mouse, or IIRC also with

This said, a more pressing issue is the fact that clicked are dropped on the
floor if they happen just during redisplay.  This is *very* annoying if your
display includes a seconds-precise timer or worse.  It make it difficult in
MPC.el to stop the fast-forward (or rewind) since they cause constant
redisplay (since the seconds-precise counter counts then even faster
than 1s/s).
