Actually, I take that back.  The reason for what you see is that the
menu is popped by down-mouse-3, not by mouse-3.  So if we can arrange
for optionally doing this with mouse-3 (why isn't that the default,
btw?), or if you could do that in your customizations, you should be
able to have the behavior you want.
