But is it a consequence of `xterm-mouse-mode'?  Does FreeBSD moused
support the xterm mouse protocol, or is it the case that moused acts
like gpm under GNU/Linux, providing generic support for tty programs?

There is the t-mouse emacs lisp library which supports gpm/mev and
allows `mouse-set-point' etc. - I don't think there is a similar
library for moused.

Emacs on a tty doesn't do a drop-down menu, except for the MS-DOS
