Make sure you don't have any other "modifier" keys turned on - the most
likely culprit is Num Lock. (xterm - at least in SunOS 5.1 - doesn't pull up
the menus if Num Lock is on.) I'm not sure about Caps Lock.

xmodmap -pm will tell you the possible modifiers; xev will tell you what
modifiers are active when you press a key.

According to Andrew Ward:

> rightMouse).
