        Description

        This is bug originally reported against NetBeans, for details please see
        http://www.netbeans.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=96189

        It seems that on systems with special trackball, isPopupTrigger returns true in situations where it should not.
        HW description - trackball with three buttons and a fourth button that
        makes the mouse/trackball scroll instead of move the pointer, i.e. holding that
        button transforms the trackball wheel into a scroll wheel (really nifty).

        Scrolling with fourth button pressed works okay, but after maybe half a second it pops up a context menu, as if the second mouse button was pressed, which wasn't.

        I'm attaching small test application. Original reporter (added to interest list) confirms that problem can be reproduced 100% on his trackball with this test app.

        I'll ask original reporter to add detail info about his trackball HW and java version...
