In forms.c:

#if 1
    /* this is an ugly hack. This is necessary due to popup pointer grab
       where a button release is eaten. Really should do a send event from
       the pop-up routines */

    if (fl_pushobj && !button_down(fl_keymask) /* && event == FL_ENTER */ )
	obj = fl_pushobj;
	fl_pushobj = NULL;
	fl_handle_object(obj, FL_RELEASE, xx, yy, key, xev);

It has unpleasant consequences all over the place.
