As for now, if you click with the left button, or middle-click on an application in the leaf menu, the behavior is the same: the application starts up and the menu gets closed.

I think that having a different behavior (e.g keeping the leaf menu opened if you middle click and close it if you use the left button) would be better, as quite often (especially on startup) I find myself, and I'm sure I'm not the only one, in the need to launch many applications at once, and keeping the menu opened is far more better than open it and close it repeatedly.

Having a method to select more than one entry without having the menu close automatically, would be desirable for the whole menu system, not just in the Deskbar. Think of hiding/showing attributes in Tracker windows or going through several formatting options in a wordprocessor.

However, I would prefer to use the RMB instead of the MMB. The further you get away from the LMB the more awkward it gets for people without that mouse button (esp. on notebooks). They have to find the, maybe seldomly used, modifiers.

How about changing the title to "Modifying menu behavior for different mouse clicks"?
