I just hit this bug a second time in version 0.4.8-1+b1.

I accidentally pressed the context menu button (on a US keyboard) and no
menu appeared.  Now all of my terminal windows (and all 149 tabs!) have
stopped accepting input (keyboard or mouse).  They still draw output,
however (my IRC client and a clock in GNU Screen's status line are still

Attached is a full backtrace from GDB, in which one can see that GTK+ is
running the main loop that Terminal's terminal_widget_context_menu()
created in the input thread.  AFAICT there's no way to end the context
menu main loop so that Terminal's input thread can return to normal
execution, so my only recourse is to kill xfce4-terminal.
