I don't know if this is serious, or not, and thus whether it is worth fixing.  But I notice a delay when executing the callback in the following code which is dependent on where the mouse click occurs in the figure.

Code to reproduce:

close all
graphics_toolkit qt
demo sombrero
set (gcf, 'ButtonDownFcn', 'get(gcbf,''SelectionType''),fflush(stdout);')

Right-click (or double-click or middle-click) within the figure, but outside the axes object and the sombrero plot.  The callback is executed immediately.

Right-click inside the axes object on top of the sombrero.  The callback is executed after some delay.
