    Thank you very much, it works well. Further: How do you get a documentation 
    line such as :
    L: documentation for left click; M: documentation for middle click; ...
    What do I have to use to specify (item wize) that a documentation is for the 
    left, middle,...  gesture (or is it :select, :describe,...)?  The only 
    available keyword now is :documentation.

You could write your own translators that use the left, middle, and
right-hand buttons.  CLIM does not directly support the notion of left,
middle, and right-hand buttons because that is not portable.

    Do you want to say that usually you call MENU-CHOOSE from inside menu-choose-
    from-drawer ? If not, how do you do this with MENU-CHOOSE-FROM-DRAWER ?

The same way.
