When I right click on a sheet name that is not the currently active 
spreadsheet, I cannot rename it.  Instead, I am given the option to rename the 
active sheet.  It would be more intuitive if the sheet you right clicked on 
could be renamed, even if it is not the active spreadsheet tab.

Hi Bettina,

on Windows it works with holding ALT and left click on the unselected sheet.

An Issue with the Window manager ?

Same problem for deleting a sheet; I mistakenly deleted the sheet that I
actually wanted to keep.  Thank god for undo, but this is more than a minor
inconvenience.  It's completely non-intuitive.

BTW, this is occurring for me on Linux, Gnome 2.6 with its default window
manager.  Using Alt and right-clicking brings up a WM menu.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
