If you cannot/don't want to use a mouse button event as position
argument of `x-popup-menu` (as it is described in the docstring and
prevents the function from signaling quit), catch the quit signal
with condition-case:

    (condition-case nil
        (x-popup-menu ...)
      ((quit) a-default-value))
