True - org-in-clocktable-p does not have anything to do with clocks, but
it ended up in org-clock.el. All of these "where am I" functions should
probably be in org.el. In fact, they all are except for
org-in-clocktable-p and org-at-item-p. The latter is in org-list.el and
it is not giving an error a) because org-in-clocktable-p errors out
first and b) because org.el contains a (require 'org-list). So having a
(require 'org-clock) in org.el does have a precedent, but of course this
way you end up defeating autoloads: the moment org.el is loaded, all of
these things are too. There might be a better arrangement but it's like
Pascal's letter[fn:1] : it would require time to find it :-)

That's true: org-context is only called from mouse code, so if you drop
the menu without the mouse, there is no problem: selecting a menu item
with the mouse, once the menu has dropped, is all widget code and does
not invoke org code at all.

That I find surprising though: I would expect that if you try to
click on the menu again, you'd get the error again: nothing is done
to define the function, so why should anything be different the
second time?


PS. In fact, I tried it out: I get the same error the second time.
