Actually, Dave, you're absolutely right. A disabled button shouldn't prevent
the message from continuing through the hierarchy; for me the issue is not
so much that the mouse event is stopped at the button, but that the event is
allowed to occur in another object that is not in the hierarchy (e.g. the
button behind the disabled button).
