Some time ago I posted to Openbox bug tracker
(https://bugzilla.icculus.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5504) the problem that I
have had with activating root menu with left mouse button:

  I just installed lxde 0.5.5 (openbox 3.5.0) on Debian wheezy. It came
  with this kind of Root context menus definition in lxde-rc.xml:

  <context name="Root">
      <!-- Menus -->
      <mousebind button="Middle" action="Press">
        <action name="ShowMenu">
      <mousebind button="Right" action="Press">
        <action name="ShowMenu">

  I tried to change root-menu activation by left mouse button by editing
  in above "Right" to "Left", but the result is that nothing happens
  when i press left mouse button (and now of course also right button).

  This used to work ok on Debian squeeze with openbox

Because I have not got any comments on the bug tracker on this, perhaps
someone on this mailing list could help in solving this problem?
