I agree with this, _but_ ...

... that's what's happening with my right mice button of my current
mouse. That the debouncing is completely broken could be seen by running
xev  , but when the debouncing starts to get broken, I thought that I
experienced software bugs,  xev  couldn't notice it.

I'm used to do this too, but at some point this doesn't work anymore.

No, it is the mouse, however, it would be smart if coders would provide
critical options, such as "undo" not at the position, were the mouse
pointer is after a menu is opened.
