Thanks Jacqueline.

I tried that button, and it tells me (or seems to tell me) that the only 
'suppressed' message is 'mousemove' (and it doesn't mention 'unused' at 
all - only 'handled' and 'not handled' - and neither of those is 
selected as suppressed). So it's a confusing 'default'.

Now that I know, I will always test with a handler rather than assuming 
the Watcher is telling the truth.

(Hmmm - that last line feels like I'm in an episode of Buffy, or Once 
Upon a Time, or ... :-)
