My preference is to disable the button at the start of the mouseUp
handler and enable it again at the end.

Yes, this is now possible although unsupported. If you set "the icon"
to the ID of a suitable image i.e. 128 x 128 pixels or less, then the
dock icon changes to match. Check the "What's New.txt" file in your
Rev folder for more details.
