[maemo-developers] how to disable right-click event

Sorry to bother you again.

We have developed a Flash application that runs on N800 devices.
We need to get rid of the contextual menu that the Flash plugin shows
when we "tap and hold" on the device. (It only shows the "About
Macromedia..." info but it is quite confusing and disturbing and we have
received lots of user complaints)

We have tried to disable the contextual menu from the Flash/Actionscript
side but it's not possible to completely remove it.

The only chance we have now is to somehow disable the "tap and hold"
event (or reconfigure the amount of time needed to fire it) so the Flash
plugin never catches it. 

Is the amount of time between the tap and the "tap and hold" event being
fired a configuration setting stored in Gconf? 

Could anyone be so kind to give us a clue on where to find?

Thank you again.
