On pc Debian x86-64 with master sources updated today, I could reproduce this.
Comment 3 Caolán McNamara 2020-05-22 13:24:29 UTC
Current situation is that it works on the selected rows, rather than the one right click was on. It looks like the old case was that if the right-clicked on row wasn't selected then it was auto-selected so I guess we can make it do that again.
