I think it's appropriate, as we still don't understand exactly what
restores the highlighting in the GTK build.

Whenever you are in update_window, typing "pp w->buffer" should
display the buffer this window is displaying.  I get to this function
3 times, with these self-explanatory results:

  Breakpoint 5, update_window (w=0x3574200, force_p=1) at dispnew.c:3547
  3547      struct glyph_matrix *desired_matrix = w->desired_matrix;
  (gdb) pp w->buffer
  nil
  (gdb) c
  Continuing.

  Breakpoint 5, update_window (w=0x356bc00, force_p=1) at dispnew.c:3547
  3547      struct glyph_matrix *desired_matrix = w->desired_matrix;
  (gdb) pp w->buffer
  #<buffer *GNU Emacs*>
  (gdb) c
  Continuing.

  Breakpoint 5, update_window (w=0x356ba00, force_p=1) at dispnew.c:3547
  3547      struct glyph_matrix *desired_matrix = w->desired_matrix;
  (gdb) pp w->buffer
  #<buffer  *Minibuf-0*>

So in my case, the second call is for the window we are interested in.
(The window whose buffer is nil is the root window of the frame, which
does not display anything; it is the root of the tree of all the
windows on that frame.)

This variable starts as zero.  If update_window_line finds a line with
a mouse highlight, it sets it to one; otherwise it doesn't touch it.
So if _any_ line in the window has mouse highlight, this variable will
end up being 1; otherwise it will stay at zero.

Maybe, maybe not.  To know exactly where the highlighting disappeared,
keep stepping with 'n', even after you exit update_window, until you
find the source line that actually clears the highlighting.  (Yes, it
could take a while, sorry, but I don't have a better suggestion.)
Then we will have our culprit, or at least the clue where to look for
it (since the line that clears the highlighting could be a call to
another function; then you'd need to step into it, etc.).

Yes; but "pp w->buffer" will tell.

I hope this is clear now.

Thanks.
