Description

The standard for opening popup menus with the mouse in GTK applications is to use the button-press event as the trigger rather than the button-release event. This behavior can be found in other GTK programs with status icons as well as the rest of audacious. This also allows for the right mouse button to be held and dragged to the desired option, and then released to select it, allowing for very smooth workflows for users with much familiarity. The status icon plugin should probably follow this convention.

To the extent of my knowledge this behavior is longstanding and is an oversight rather than a regression so I'm not sure which version should be marked.

It should be pretty easy to change. Just replacing "button-release-event" by "button-press-event" in statusicon.c, line 323.
