When I Ctrl-click on the left button, it is seen as the
right button without Ctrl: xev says button 3 state
0x400 instead of button 1 state 0x104.

    Not a bug. This is the default mouse button emulation behavior. You can
    customize it by editing your connection profile (File -> Connection Profiles) and
    changing the emulation settings.

    Closing.

    OK, it seems that for some reason, my profile wasn't
    completely configured. Also I wonder why the default isn't
    "no emulation" (emulations should always be explicitly set
    by the user).

    The philosophy behind the emulation default is "clueless Mac user trying to
    connect to a Windows machine". The Mac uses control-click for a drop-down
    menu in quite a few places. Right-clicking on Windows generally gives a drop-
    down menu. Windows is the most common OS platform. Hence, the default.
