I started getting that loads after a kludgy patch I added to allow me to move
windows with Alt-left_mouse_click at any location in a window.  I assumed it
was my fault :)  But as it didn't seem to do anything bad other than display
some stuff to the output, I commented the line out.

As you won't be using my patch (I assume), I guess it's not my code at all
(only a few lines anyway) but my code probably means the sequence of mouse
clicks and alt presses causes it more.  I suggest finding the line in the
code and adding a // at the beginning of the line... or somebody should fix
it :)
