Bug Description

Binary package hint: transmission

When the icon for Transmission was displayed in the notification area in Karmic and earlier, left-clicking it activated the default action (show/hide main window). In Lucid, this simply displays the menu (previously, a right-click performed this action). This is a usability regression because the default action requires a click, a point within the menu, and another click, where previously the same action required only one.
