Interesting. You're right. This seems to work instead:

local sFlag

on mouseDown
   put true into sFlag
end mouseDown

on mouseMove x,y
   if not sFlag then pass mousemove
   repeat with i = 1 to 10
     if x,y is within the rect of btn i then
       put the short name of btn i
     end if
   end repeat
end mouseMove

on mouseUp
   put false into sFlag
end mouseUp

on mouseRelease
   put false into sFlag
end mouseRelease

I put it into a card script. LiveCode is pretty fast, I don't see any 
lag while polling.
