@jeckhack oops nice catch! Fixing in next package. I hope it does not cause issues...

Ok. What about removing !168 then? It introduces very heavy stutter when dragging windows if you have a mouse with 1000hz polling rate.

@tannisroot According to the comments, MR 265 introduces some bugs. We should wait until it's stabilized before adding it.
