[racket] DrRacket right-click menu fragility in Linux - back again

This problem was never really gone for me actually.
It has become less of a problem, but I still sometimes need to click a few
times to get the right menu.
Also, the 'definitions' drop-down list can disappear after clicking it and
moving the mouse pointer through it.
So it may be more general than just the right-click menu.

You may still try the latest nightly version, which has had a lot of
improvements since 5.3.6:
