Actually, the right-click menus do not act exactly the same if you're 
using floating windows or not.

Within a floating window, a right-click opens the pop-up menu, and :

1/ If your mouse is off the menu (1 pixel is enough), it disappears (no 
need to left-click).
2/ If your mouse is in the menu, you can choose an item, etc... and 
left-click to validate it.

Within a non-floating window, a right click opens the pop-up menu and 
the menu remains opened, until you use the left-click to validate an 
item, or you left click elsewhere to close it.

This behaviour difference is inherent to our child window coding, and I 
must confess that modifying this part of the code could be _very_ 
hazardous, and lead to many side effects. Anyway, we'll see what we can 
do on this topic...

I personnally use the floating windows all the time (to save space and 
ease applications switching), and I've been very familiar with the 
right-click behaviour after using it few minutes only.
