Mac CLIM Questions

I'm using MCL 2.0b1p3 and CLIM 1.0.
Thanks for the bug reports.
My first question is: How do I simulate the Middle and Right mouse
I don't know the answer to this yet, but will do some research on it
this week. You might wind up having to define commands on
Control-"left" rather than on "middle".
The second one is: When I abort a menu-choose form, it completely
exits the frame and gives the message "Cancelled" back at the Lisp top
level. I presume that there is a throw that I need to catch, yet I
have not been able to find any mention of it in the Symbolics manual.
One of the demos catches the tag 'abort-gesture-seen', but that's not
what menu-choose is throwing. Even the test-suite menu and dialog
test ("Simple Menu") exits if the menu is aborted.
Yes, this is a bug in the CLIM Mac chooser. We're not catching the
THROW to ':CANCEL caused by the Macintosh modal dialog code. For now,
wrap CATCHING-MAC-CANCEL around your calls to MENU-CHOOSE, where that
macro is defined as
(defmacro catching-mac-cancel (&body body)
We will fix this in a CLIM patch soon.
