(4/207) 1530632 - Right click and caret movement

jedit 4.2final and 4.3pre5
java 1.5_06
win xp sp2

Status Quo:
1. Normaly the Caret moves to the clicked position
before the context menu is shown (regular behavior of
most programs).
2. Only In single selection mode and when there is a
selection of text: Caret does not move (stays at begin
or end of the selection)

1. same behavior in all cases
2. Toggle this behavior by a new checkbox
(GlobalOptions->TextArea) to control whether the caret
should be moved or not (in all cases:-)).

In fact, I can't see the goal for moving the caret via right click at all.

But since there's no response for 5 years, maybe I'm alone in this opinion. Should I close this request?
