#27 DHTML menu bug still there

The new release feels pretty solid but I am disappointed the DHTML bug with menus is still there. There are several sites I can't go to because the click isn't being handled properly. I would have considered this a blocker for 0.7. I know there was a patch for this. Why didn't it get in there? Also, the Firebird toolbar right-click bug is still there so if you right click on a chevroned item the UI freezes until you make a new window. That sounds pretty serious to me to have not been patched for 0.7.
