I would have expected behaviour as Ken describes. I don't think it's
a case of "swallowing" mouseClicks, but of passing them on through
the hierarchy, e.g. to card, to stack, etc. That would be the same as
if you clicked on any visible opaque object (button, image, card,
field, etc.) that had no mouse event handlers.
However, as I wasn't aware of current behavior, I obviously have
never had a need for this, and I wouldn't want to break people's
stacks over it.
(I notice on OS X that disabled buttons are partly transparent.
Perhaps just part of the mouseUp should pass through to the object
