[openbox] Right mouse press delay

Hi, All.

I make the settings following in the rc.xml, mouse section:

    <context name="Maximize">
      <mousebind action="Press" button="Left">
        <action name="ToggleMaximizeVert"/>
      <mousebind action="Press" button="Middle">
        <action name="ToggleMaximizeFull"/>
      <mousebind action="Press" button="Right">
        <action name="ToggleMaximizeHorz"/>

Left and middle buttons works as expected: the action is taken
immediately by pressing a button. But if I press (and hold) the right
button, the action is performed after the 1 second delay or after button
is released.

Is this a bug or a feature?
Is configurable this strange delay?
If it is hardcoded, what is its purpose and why just the right button?

Yours truly Alexey
