I borrowed a Windows laptop to look into this. What happens is that a  
yellowButtonPressed event is in fact generated on ctrl-left-click, but  
since it had the ctrl flag set it tried to invoke the metaMenu which  
is disabled in etoysFriendly mode. The attached changeset fixes that -  
please review.
