So you can invoke many commands by clicking, but the one that calls a
menu is failing. What about launching without clicking? For example
type this in sawfish-client:
(popup-window-menu (get-window-by-name-re "TITLE"))
Replace TITLE with (part of) a title of a window you have already
open. It should report that a process is running, and show a menu near
the mouse (not the window), and of course perform operations if you
use arrows and enter to select a function from the menu.
If still no menu, then the problem is somewhere else (the menu
structure or the menu program or ...) and not about clicks being
