I have the same version but using Debian/Unstable packages.

Left clicking works as expected, right click also launches unless I do a 
right-hold which the opens the context menu.

I don't think I've changed any mouse settings so I am puzzled that I am seeing 
one of the two issues but not the other.

Anyone else getting either click (mis-)behavior?
