This is because the status toggle is attached to a general "click"
event on that element.  I made that event check which buttion was
clicked, if it was button 1, it does it's stuff, if not it doesn't. 
So, click and hold is still a click, and of course it's with button
one.  Hmm....

I'm pretty sure that the right way to fix this is to use oncommand in
the xul, rather than dynamically adding a click event.  It will take a
while before I can check this on a mac, though.  Plus the code will
have to be tweaked to get a global reference to that function to put
into the oncommand.  I'm now aware of it though.
