Bug Description

* Impact: the wrong menu is open if you context click without moving the cursor

* Test Case

What I did:
(See attached video.) In both tests I've selected two files and right-clicked one of them. In the first case I didn't move the cursor between releasing LMB and pressing RMB; in the second case, I did.

What happened:
In the first case Nautilus acted like I've right-clicked empty space in the folder, even though I've clicked a file. In the second case it acted normally - like I've right-clicked a file.

What was expected:
In both cases Nautilus should act like I've right-clicked a file.

* Regression potential: right click on files, folders and backgroud, check that you get the menu corresponding to the element you selected

------

Additional info:
Ubuntu 13.04, GNOME nautilus 3.6.3 (1:3.6.3-0ubuntu16).

I was really confused. I've tried few times and it looked like I can't open right-click menu related to few files. I have found solution in about 15s to 1m, but If I didn't knew anything about mouse events (and average user doesn't have that knowledge) it would last longer.
