Easy to accidentally select first option in popup menus
Submitted by Marcus Carlson
At the moment it's to easy to accidentally select the first option in a popup menu when right-clicking with some themes . This is a big problem in eg nautilus were a right-click often creates an extra folder, but problem also exists in other applications. The right place to fix this seems to be gtk.
My suggestion is to 1) move the menu a few pixels or 2) set a timeout before you can choose an item from the menu (~100ms?)
 Mostly noticed this in clearlooks because of the thin border around the menu
Other information: Nautilus reverted a patch  to fix this issue in 2002 to be more consistent with other gnome applications. For an up to date bug against nautilus see
