PMFJI yes, it should, basically the problem boils down to the following : in
toplevel.cpp the window getting the mouse event is later called again to
setup its cursor appropriately. In your code you delete wxWindows during the
mouse down. My change (sent to Jeffrey, not committed to 2.8 branch yet)
should now detect all these situations correctly (before it only worked
correctly if the wxWindow getting the event itself was deleted, not when one
of its parents was)
