1. Log in setting fluxbox as window manager, right click on desktop and open Chrome or firefox, download file, save to location, have nautilus starts. Right click on desktop to open some other program, get context menu for creating new folder etc
2. Expected behavior, right clicking on desktop brings up fluxbox menu
3. Actually happens, right clicking on desktop brings up context menu for nautilus
