I don't know if it's intentional but it is surprising :)
The plugin handles the button release event instead of the clicked signal
this results in launching the associated command even if after a press I move
the cursor away from the plugin, which is unlike how buttons usually behave.
Steps to Reproduce:
It's intentional, as we have different actions on different buttons (left button
launches the configured program, middle button forces an update) and "clicked"
signal does not reveal the button clicked.
then maybe check if the widget still has focus in the handler before doing
anything? I haven't used it, maybe with GTK_WIDGET_HAS_FOCUS().
other plugins have properties in one button and action on left but they still
GTK_WIDGET_HAS_FOCUS() won't work, as the panel doesn't accept focus (and so the
button never gets it). But checking if the event coordinates lie inside the
widget's allocation would probably work. Brian?

Adds a check for cursor position in button-release-event
For reference, here's what I meant.
Y'know, I also wish the button would show itself being pressed in and released
when you middle click as well. I wonder if there's a way to do that. But I
Pasi, it looks fine to me. If it works, go ahead and commit it.
Ok, nevermind, I did it myself. Fixed.
