Changed to Feature Request.

It may make sense to use different behavior depending on the platform Wesnoth has been compiled for: i.e. dismiss only on X11, dismiss and respawn on anything else, or alternatively dismiss and respawn on Mac OS X and Windows and dismiss only on anything else.

It appears the behavior for Linux is different than for Windows and Mac OS X.

I just tested with iceweasel and xchat and they behave in the same way as Wesnoth currently does. So not sure whether it's really a bug or designed the same way in Wesnoth.

The code is playing tricks with selected units there, so the obvious fix may have some unexpected consequences. Assigning to ilor therefore.

When the user has a contextual menu open, s/he cannot create and jump to a new contextual menu while in one.

The standard behavior both in Mac OS X and Windows is when you right-click elsewhere in a window a new contextual menu is immediately created at the new location and the old window is dismissed.

In the attached file, if the user were to right-click on any other hex, whether it be Konrad or any of the grassy plain around the castle, the current contextual menu disappears but a new one is not created.
