This has been happening for years, it just may be more frequent now. I've 
had a handler in my private backscript for probably 10 years that does 
"unlock cursor" when I type "uc" in the message box. There's no consistent 
recipe. My best guess is that it happens when the cursor is moving so fast 
that any messages that track the mouse are either not sent or the mouse is 
no longer over the original control when it is received.
