Dragging image while right-click menu is activated (hard to do but possible)
will lock up X until mozilla-bin is killed.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to an arbitrary Web site, e.g. www.mozilla.org
2. Place mouse cursor over an image, e.g. the logo in top left corner.
2. Click and hold left mouse button, then click and hold right mouse button
3. Release left mouse button while keeping right mouse button held down
4. If/when right-click menu appears, move mouse cursor to right. May have to
move it left again and/or wave it around for a second or two.

Actual Results:  
Mozilla freezes about 80% of the time, along with all other X applications (at
least under KDE 2.2.2, XFree86 4.2.0). X functions normally after I telnet in
from another machine and kill mozilla-bin.

Expected Results:  
Anything but freeze.

KDE 2.2.2, XFree86 4.2.0, Slackware Linux 8.0 (much patched), tdfx server with
16MB Voodoo3 PCI

I'm seeing problems with linux trunk 20030226 as well, but the freeze is not
permanent.  If i wait a bit, things go back to normal.

Mozilla doesn't handle both buttons being pushed well. there's a bug on that

Does hitting the Esc button help?

Yes, the ESC key does unfreeze everything!

this worksforme with linux trunk (gtk1 and gtk2), but might have been fixed in
the X server.

fry: are you still seeing this bug?

Couldn't replicate it on current setup (Mozilla 1.7.5 / KDE 3.0.1 / XFree86
4.2.0) . Will check on other machines too. Thanks everyone.
