I'm talking about the _behavior_, not about the bindings.  The
behavior in the other cases is that releasing the mouse button doesn't
pop down the menu in the other cases; with context menus, it does.
That is sub-optimal UI, as users who don't expect that will see the
menu flash momentarily and disappear, at least on TTY frames.  We
should fix this so the context menus behave like the other drop-down
menus we have.
