There is a bug in d7.0 with right mouse events sent to behaviors which also effects left hander mouse setups
d7.0 behaviors left-hander shockwave

This would happen in authoring and I didn't test it in projectors or plugin. It was acknowledge by jd and apparently corrected in d7.01 (which was the version number of the French, German and Japanese localized director). I tested that again in d7.02 and couldn't reproduce it. With shockwave this may be another question, since AFAIK the d7.02 shockwave has not been released yet. Testing in shockwave therefore is like testing it in d7.0 even when you authored it in d7.02 As for a workaround: I didn't test it now but I think everything else except behaviors worked ok, so you could use primary event handlers, member scripts etc.
