I think I understand: In some apps, the right-click contextual menu
appears with its first item selected by default. If you release the
right button, the first item is chosen.
This seems contrary to the behavior in some - but not all - other Gnome
apps, where the contextual menu appears with no item selected. In those
apps, releasing the right mouse button leaves the menu open but doesn't
execute an option.
Even worse, if the menu is near the bottom of the screen, the *last*
item is selected, since the menu appears anchored to the lower-left
corner instead of the usual upper-left corner. And that doesn't always
seem to be automatically executed on mouse release (contrary to the
first item, which always seems to be executed).
So you're not ever sure what will happen if you click and release the
right button without moving the mouse: select item 1 + execute, select
item n + execute, select item n + no execute, no item selected + menu
Not sure what causes this inconsistency (GTK+, theme, user error [e.g.
me!]). But I agree, my personal preference would be that no contextual
menu item is ever selected by default (emphasis on personal preference).
In any case, doesn't seem to be Nautilus-specific. For usability list?
