Could you describe more precisely?  E.g. which button do you press, which
toolkit, which version of Emacs, ...?

The usual problem that causes such an effect is that some elisp code reads
both the mouse-down and mouse-up events, pushes the mouse-up event back on
the queue and then executes the mouse-down event which pops the menu.
The problem with that is that the mouse-up event should never be seen by
elisp, it should be eaten by the toolkit instead.

We've had such reports in the past and IIRC we had corrected it.
