Thanks, this seems to work well, so I installed the change as trunk
revision 114717.

Dragging the mouse right after popping up the menu and releasing it to
select a menu item is very rare.  After the above change, indeed in
some cases releasing the mouse after dragging it does not select the
menu item, you need another click.  But I consider this a very rare
situation, and the remedy is simple and natural: click once more.  So
I didn't do anything about this case.
