What do you know!!! You can pop a context menu on text i just found out!!!

Just as i finished making mine work! 

big pet-peeve in the another-win32-gui-issue department i tried to tell
Kevin about a year ago. And what do you know? It's well hidden! 

In browser mode, selecting text:
Shift-control-right-click twice... 
 
In pointer mode, for selected controls (one or more

shift right-click twice

one to deselect the mouseobject and one to reslect it and drop the menu)
 
Note: 
Dont tell me if is not reliable. If you do it wrong, you could drag the text
into itself, and make it disappear without UNDO - this happens too often for
my liking but it's unreproducible! You've been warned...
(2nd bugzilla i can't write)


Enjoy!
