You have a couple of choices. The easiest is to just turn off
auto-hilite and substitute your own handlers. On mousedown, hilite the
button, on mouseUp and mouseRelease, unhilite it.
The second way is to use a local script variable to store the
selectedchunk. When the button is released, reselect the stored chunk:
put the selectedchunk into sStoredChunk
