I tried the new "backspace cancels message" feature. Works fine, even for cancelling the SHOW display.
I encountered a problem with the right mouse button as a shortcut for the h-key. I cleared the display and right-clicked on the decimal point. As expected, it changed from comma to point and vice versa. However, after a few times the "f" announciator (!) came on and the 34s started to behave strange. The comma/point switch showed no reaction, and suddenly "Rg X" showed up in the upper left corner of the display. I had not noticed this display before, it seems to list the contents of the registers (up/down keys show the stack, the lettered registers, then R00, R01, R02... etc.). I'm sure this is not a secret feature and documented somewhere. #-)
Once the emulator even showed the f-key with inverted colors, just as if the key was pressed permanently. There was not way to return to normal operation except a restart. No, right-click f did not help.
First I was not sure if some of this was exactly the way the new secondary mouse button features you described are supposed to work. But at least I can reproduce the error with the right-click on the key with the decimal point. After a few consecutive clicks the "f" announciator comes on, and things start getting a bit weird. ;-)
