:) You can avoid all evil by:
click at the loc of btn "whatever"
No cursor movement necessary. But even better, if you only need the
mouseup action (i.e., there is no need to simulate mousedown,
mousestilldown, etc.) then just:
send "mouseup" to btn "whatever"
Either of these methods avoids the need to consult with outside parties. :)
