[Maxima] Input line in wxMaxima

I like the new wxMaxima but I have noticed that there are still "issues" with it. I am not going to call them bugs but maybe I
should. For example, right clicking on an output line does not consistently bring up the right context menu. There appears to be
two different context menu's, one for input and one for output. The input one has three options, the output one has ten or so.
Sometimes I like to factor an expression by right clicking it and select factor from the context menu. Now sometimes I cannot get
that menu to come up no matter what I do. That I think is a weakness or maybe a bug. Maybe there is something I am missing but I
don't know why this happens. I get the input context menu when right clicking on output. Very problematic.

personally, I do not mind the shift-enter.
The "old" version required two characters also. the first character was
; or $. The second character was <enter>.
If you allow only <enter> to submit the command, then all commands must
be one-line long, or you need another
character sequence to continue a long command. In some systems this is
two characters \ <enter> .
I think that wxmaxima should behave somewhat differently in "batch"
mode... it seems to display the results
even if the commands in the file are terminated by $.
Also, as I've mentioned, the front-end seems to get "clogged" and slow
down, especially if you have some long
text from the manual in your notebook.
