It is possible to do this in Chrome. Difference is WK2 isn't treating the click as a user gesture.

A “why” comment would be welcome here. Also, I think the local variable can be named "indicator".

Not caused by this patch: I also think that RAII objects with side effects need clearer names. It’s not at all clear that an indicator is an object that affects global state.
