Bonsoir Mark,

Sorry, I did not think of that :-(
So a mouseMove solution seems the way to go:
You could just test if color has been changed or not and just do it  
if needed.
Anyway, mouseMove is sent repeatedly in all cases.
You could also use a pending message of your own but I don't think it  
would help in this case.
