On any version of Mac OS X with any version of Revolution from 2.2 up  
to and including 4.0, create a new stack, with one square button, e.g.  
70x70 pixels (size doesn't matter). Give this button the following  

on mouseDown
      repeat until the mouse is up with messages
           set the loc of me to the mouseLoc
           wait 0 millisecs with messages
      end repeat
end mouseDown

Turn off the autoHilite and, just to be sure, the sharedHilite. Click  
the button and move it around. The button will appear hilited, which I  
don't want, because I need to be able to control the hilite myself,  
while dragging around this button. That's also a reason why I can't  
use the locking-up drag command. All other solutions you and I can  
think of fail too.

For many years now, I keep running into this bug, whenever I try to  
quickly create a nice interface (something RunRev is supposed to be  
the ideal tool for).

When is this ridiculous and annoying bug finally going to be fixed?!
