Thanks.  I ended up studying the source code of the clock applet
in gnome-panel (clock.c) and saw that there is a special callback
that prevents the button widget from absorbing the right-button
press event:

static gboolean
do_not_eat_button_press (GtkWidget      *widget,
                         GdkEventButton *event)
        if (event->button != 1)
                g_signal_stop_emission_by_name (widget, "button_press_event");

        return FALSE;

/* ... */

        g_signal_connect (toggle, "button_press_event",
                          G_CALLBACK (do_not_eat_button_press), NULL);

I don't understand how having the button widget stop the emission
of the signal lets this signal continue to the applet widget,
but this magic worked for me.
