I think your speculation is exactly right.  Perhaps Stephen or someone
else who has access to a GTK build could confirm that an extra
redraw of mouse highlight is triggered at some point in this scenario.

Anyway, I think it is not important (however interesting and exciting)
to determine the exact reason which causes the bug not to appear in
the GTK build.  It suffices to say that any non-GTK build suffers from
this bug, and suffered in the past (Emacs 23 at least) as well.  I
think this information, and the patch that cures the bug I posted
earlier, is enough for Chong and Stefan to make the decision whether
to install the change now or defer it until after v24.1.
