Hmm, strange.
Right button double clicks should work, since Wine does
./windows/message.c:               msg->message += (WM_LBUTTONDBLCLK - WM_LBUTTONDOWN);
a relative statement to support *all* kinds of mouse buttons with double
However, since a right button double click is rather "rare", I'd be tempted to
think that I'm missing some parts of the picture and Wine does indeed have
a bug here for right buttons.
Try using something like --debugmsg +relay,+msg,+message,+cursor,+x11drv,+event
to find out why a double click doesn't get generated (I assume a double
WM_RBUTTONDOWN/UP gets generated instead of a WM_RBUTTONDBLCLK).
Interesting files would be e.g. windows/message.c, dlls/x11drv/mouse.c,
dlls/x11drv/event.c and maybe also windows/input.c
Add some TRACEs there if needed, to find out why it doesn't want to do
what you want it to do :-)

Good luck !
