[PD] Context menu depending on window focus?

Hi list,

on OS X and Linux the context menu of a patch behaves differentely
whether the window is focussed (foreground) or not.

Selecting "Help..." for an object in an unfocussed window will open the
introduction help patch regardless, selecting "Open" for a subpatch or
abstraction will silently fail. I feel making a right click on an
unfocussed window should either not open a context menu at all or pull
that window into the foreground (focus it) and open the menu with its
correct function. Maybe this is an OS/Tk issue and it is known since
a long time?
