If alwaysBuffer is set to true, then the controller will not respond  
to mouse-clicks - although will respond to keyboard input (to some  
extent). Such a player should only really be interacted with via  
script as the interactive functionality cross-platform will vary  

However, the fact that you are experiencing a difference in behaviour  
between 2.6 and 2.7 points towards the fact that something is up.  
Therefore, if you could take the time to post more details along with  
a sample movie and stack exhibiting the affect in Bugzilla we will  
take a closer look at it.

Warmest Regards,
