To be correct, the full code is (MouseToolbar.js:81) :
        btn.events = new OpenLayers.Events(this, btn, null, true);
        btn.events.register("mousedown", this, this.buttonDown); 
        btn.events.register("mouseup", this, this.buttonUp); 
        btn.events.register("dblclick", this, OpenLayers.Event.stop);
        btn.action = id;
        btn.title = title;
        btn.alt = title;
        btn.map = this.map;

So it should be working ! But it is not, with my own configuration. I may be 
wrong ... 

Thanks for your help !
