Hi Jim. I agree that this should be the behavior on all Os's. On Windows, as you move the mouse across a button, the buttons exhibit a slight flashing effect. It's as though there are some kind of Zones in the button. 
I've never noticed this until Richard made mention of this activity. It is slightly noticeable, but it is definitely there.

On Mac when I hold the mouse down on a LC button, I can move the cursor around within the button and the button remains hilited.
As soon as the cursor exits the button the hilite disappears.
To me this is the desired behavior one should see on all platforms.
