IceWM: disabling right clicking on titlebar

Dear all,

I'm setting up a Thinstation installation at the moment with Firefox in Kiosk mode. I'm using IceWM as a WM for the message boxes. I managed to disable all possible key combinations, mouse click actions and removed all the icons on the titlebars so the users of the thinclients can't do anything but browsing with FF. One "flaw" remains though, right clicking on a IceWM titlebar still gives me the system menu. I'd like to disable that too, I don't want users to be able to minimize anything because that means the thinclient becomes unuseable and needs to be rebooted. But apparently this is impossible within IceWM. Or did I miss something? Thanks in advance for any tips.

Thanks linux_linux but I've read the manual in depth. I think the only solution is compiling IceWM myself with a patch.
