Rhythmbox should not have "delete" nor "paste" option for read-only track name display

Bug Description

Binary package hint: rhythmbox

I'm using Edgy.

Reproduction: When playing a track in Rhythmbox, a line of text is displayed with (my variable names) "$track by $artist from $album" in it. This line is selectable and context-menuable with "paste" and "delete" options, which are always (appropriately) greyed out and surely should not be included given that the line is read-only by design.

Fix: This widget should have its context menu stripped of the useless items "paste" and "delete" unless GTK does not permit it.

I can confirm this, and also, I agree with Ben.

It is really important to open rhythmbox and hover said widget to understand what he means.

I think this bug is easy to fix, and if no one has the time, I will try to submit a patch.

Comment from upstream:

"The delete/cut/paste options are provided by GtkLabel, and I'm not sure if
there is a way to change it. If it makes sense to change it, it would be better
done at the GTK level, so it affects all applications."
