Thanks for the feedback, Clarence and Jim.

I found a report for this originally specifying Android only (where I 
first noticed it), and added a note about the scope affecting both 
Windows and Linux too:

> 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.
