Thank you Craig and Jaques for your ideas.
Yes I am just dragging the brush tool (no line grc) in a repeat loop. And
now I remember why I did this unusual handling.
When just using the brush tool, painting a line works nicely without being
But I needed to get a mouseup message, when releasing the mouse while using
the brush tool. But having the brush tool selected, I didn't got a mousedown
or mouseup. That’s why I build a handler, called with mousedown, selected
the brush tool, dragged in  repeat loop while mousedown and selected the
browse tool again after the repeat loop. Because the repeat loop asked for
mousedown I got the browse tool back after releasing the mouse.
So if I want to get rid of this strange handling and just using the pure
brush tool, let it doing the drawing, the question is, how can I get a
mouseup and intercept between two drawings?
Thanks for any ideas
