#412 Detaching non-top tab should not change top tab

Program (402)
Nathan Gray

This is a minor quibble. Say I have 3 tabs open in this order:
foo.c, foo.h, and zoo.c; and foo.c is raised. If I right-click on the
zoo.c tab and detach it then foo.h gets raised. There's no reason
to raise another tab if the one being detached isn't the top tab.

This is with 5.5RC2.

    I saw this earlier. Similar bug on Move-Tab also. Will get the
    fix in soon.

    There is a bug. When you right-click on a tab that's not in
    focus, the tab-specifc actions should act on the tab you
    _clicked_ on, not the tab that's still in focus.

    There are usually 2 ways to handle this:

    1) Make the right-click event acts as a tab selecton (left
    click) event before posting the menu
    2) Avoid #1, but note internally which tab was clicked, and
    use that for interpreting the actions.

    I prefer #2, and it seems that's what Mozilla does.

    All is fixed in CVS.
