Description Alexey Proskuryakov 2007-12-03 03:32:52 PST
From bug 13341: we fire a fake mousemove event when a modifier key is pressed. We shouldn't.

Currently, it's needed to cause things like the status bar message to update.

Is there a workaround for this bug? Is there a way to disambiguate fake mousemove events from real ones, does one of the event properties identifies this as a modifier type mousemove?

In WebKit2 this comes out of this code:

            m_flagsChangedEventMonitor = [NSEvent addLocalMonitorForEventsMatchingMask:NSEventMaskFlagsChanged handler:[weakThis] (NSEvent *flagsChangedEvent) {
                if (weakThis)
                return flagsChangedEvent;
