Middle-click on non-link images opens new blank tab

Bug Description

To reproduce:
Load a page which is just an image, or which contains an image that is not a link. (e.g. <http://the-witness.net/news/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/Witness_Ruins.jpg>)
Middle-click the image. A new tab opens.

I also see new tabs open in the same fashion if I quintuple(!)-click an image in this situation, or if I double-click the scrollbar grip.

This is with most recent bzr trunk, GTK2.

Yes, this is all the same bug.

Other issues with the same underlying cause include right-clicking on the scrollbar trough opening the tab menu and right-clicking individual tabs resulting in a menu with [separator, new tab, undo close tab] at the top.

Cannot confirm this with a singly middle-click in 0.5.10 (GTK3), but a double middle-click on basically any non-link area (including scrollbars) will also open a new tab.
