And with mouse3.el, by default you'd double-click there,
instead of a slower-than-double-click second click there.

Or the reverse (not the default), if that's what you prefer.

Either way, the other (slow-2nd by default, or double by
option) shows you a context menu.  (And the menu includes
`Kill' and `Delete', if your double-vs-second fu misses.)
