Oh, I think I know what it is. When you right click on nautilus, it pops up
a menu. When it pops up this menu, it grabs the mouse pointer/keyboard. When
Openbox then goes to pop up its menu, the mouse/keyboard grab fails (since
nautilus has it) and so the menu isn't shown. In previous releases this just
ended up with the X server being grabbed indefinitely (basically, a freeze
up). As such, I suggest you rebind it to the middle mouse button :)
