"clicked" means the button was activated, not that any mouse button was
clicked. To have "clicked" work with all buttons would be annoying in
cases where you want the left mouse button to activate the GtkButton but
the other buttons to do something else, i.e. in most cases. 

It doesn't seem to me that you're trying to do something simple; why are
you playing with all the release_event and leave_event stuff?  Just
connect to button_press_event, which passes the callback an event
containing the pressed button. If that doesn't work then your action
probably isn't so simple after all.
