So I left-click to start a selection in gnome-terminal. I can end this 
selection with right-click. Which is why the context menu comes up with 
control-right-click, just in case I did a left-click earlier. (For those 
who wonder "I tried to right-click and I didn't get the menu; lots of 
stuff got highlighted instead; what happened?" this is precisely why.)

Please tell me sawfish doesn't have control-right-click bound to 
something different :)
