Interesting.  Maybe there's a bug.

I'm running a GTK build (i686-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 2.16.1) on
latest trunk.

If I do a mouse-1 click-and-release on the major mode name, most of the
time it does not pop up a menu.  Instead, I get an echo area message

"mode-line down-mouse-1-"

and that's all.  Once in a while, the menu seems to pop up and stay up.
But this happens very occasionally.
