I don't believe there is a simple way of doing this, unless tkabber
has defined its own virtual events, which I don't think they have.
The mac way is either to use control-clicking or to set a timer for
the button that fires after 1 sec or so.
An alternative is to use my own Tcl/Tk Jabber client, Coccinella, which is
being developed on Mac OS X, and runs on Windows + Linux/Unix.
