Hi friends,

when the pointer tool is active, "mouseenter" and "mouseleave"
handlers are executed nevertheless!? 

I don't this this is correct behaviour!

For the sake of "conceptional continuity" (©Frank Zappa) then all 
other mouse handlers should be executed and we don't want that. :-)
All or nothing, right?

I could swear this was not the case in earlier version, so I searched my
archives and found that this must have started with version 5.x of LC

I have an old MetaCard version with Rev engine 4.1 where this does NOT happen.
But DOES with LC version 5.02

What do you think?
