I'm interested in this same Mouse-3 question, only in my case not for
ECB, but for SLIME, which also has a very useful context menu I can't
get to.

I tried to follow your reference above, but it doesn't work for me.  I
have Aquamacs 2.3a, and when I go to "Bringing some Emacs 23 behavior
back" the whole of the text at that node is:

"Export [sic] users who find themselves confused by some changes to the
Emacs behavior that they are used to, either due to the upgrade to Emacs
23, or to Aquamacs, may undo configuration changes quickly by using the
Emacs Lisp code shown at
http://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/AquamacsEmacsCompatibilitySettings in
their Preferences.el file."

Following the link to the emacs wiki, I search for "mouse" and find nothing.

can you amplify?  What version of the manual are you looking at?
