Well, RoundCube isn't actually designed to work without javascript. The
subject link was requested by some users and it provides the possibility to
right-click the subject and then choose "Open in new Tab/Window". In this
case (right-click), the regular click-event is not executed and everything
works fine (until IE7 came out).

Thanks again for tracking this down, I'll try out the onmouseup workaround.
And once more M$ confirmed that money always wins.
