This would be useful in situations where you are loading a really big page but also want to go back to the previous page, etc. This isn't something I would have 'always on' for back/forward buttons, but the ability to do it when I wanted to would be useful - ie, CRTL-Click back opens in a new tab.

There is an extension to Firebird which duplicates this functionality: http://mozfbrh.mozdev.org/ I don't know if it works or is available elsewhere for Seamonkey, but I am using Firebird these days anyway. You can close this bug in and refer people to that extension as far as I am concerned.
I have to disagree with Comment 3. I think that if a user is used to using Ctrl+click or middle click to open a new tab, they would expect this to apply across the whole browser as the default behaviour, especially as it works for example on the bookmarks toolbar and on the back button itself. This was certinally the expected behaviour for me. Obviously it's up to the devs to decide though!
cc'ing Josh Keisling, creator of MozFBRH. Josh, have you spoken to any mozilla.org people about including some of the MozFBRH code into the Mozilla Suite or Firefox? Is this something that you would be open to?
Reassigning obsolete bugs to their respective Seamonkey owners (i.e. nobody). If you want this fixed for Firefox, change the Product and Component accordingly and reassign back to me.

This works currently on Firefox, so it should work on SeaMonkey as well.
