I am using opensuse 12.1 via a virtual maschine. I'm using Gnome 3.2.1 and having this annoying problem, that whenever I want to open the context menu with the right mouse button it opens directly when I press the button.

On Windows and Ubuntu the behavior is, that the menu opens after I release the button again.

The annoying thing is, that when I click the right mouse button (press and release directly) opensuse selects the entry lying in the menu under the mouse pointer. That leads to really severe problems.

Also I see, that the problem is not in every program. Especially in Eclipse the program occurs. But not only in Eclipse.

Has somebody an idea about how to solve that problem?

I think you should try changing default theme/window manager.
