@smaug----  I believe on Windows you get a XBUTTON event if you don't indicate it is handled then it will send you an APPCOMMAND. Chrome doesn't follow this mode for context menus and I'm proposing Chrome doesn't follow it for these buttons either. This would be similar to how it works on X11.

See https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ms645601(v=vs.85).aspx#_win32_XBUTTONs

Where should the default action occur. I agree with that option B is the less likely to cause the context menu issues all over again.
