I myself questioned the functionality here because you can have an item selected, and if the file list is short, right-click in the blank space to get the pop-up menu and perform an operation.  If you right-click in the blank space when nothing is selected a message box pops up altering you that no file has been selected.

I think both of those situations are acceptable as it "feels" ok, but I'm not opposed to tweaking it.  The other possible way to make it work is to not change the selection on right click at all or to affect the file being right-clicked without changing the selection.  I have apps that do it both ways.
