This is consistent with the fact that the glyph matrices of the
original window were freed and reallocated.  They are cleared when
they are allocated.

So I think this means that the GTK build, like non-GTK builds, removes
the highlighting.  It's just that, due to peculiarities of how Emacs
works with X window system, the highlighting doesn't actually
disappear from display until some time later, when Emacs flushes
everything it has drawn to X.

Now, how does the mouse highlighting gets restored in the GTK build,
after it was cleared above?  I think the answer to that was pointed
out by Jan, earlier in this thread: the function
xg_update_scrollbar_pos in gtkutil.c.  It does this near its very end:

      x_sync (f);
      cancel_mouse_face (f);

And if you look at cancel_mouse_face, you will see that it does
exactly what my proposed patch for delete-other-windows-internal would

So could you please see if the above call to cancel_mouse_face is
indeed made, in the GTK build, after mouse highlighting disappears?

Actually, it would be good to put a breakpoint in cancel_mouse_face,
right after you hit the breakpoint in Fdelete_other_windows_internal,
type "continue", and see if that function ever gets called and by what
code.  When I try this on my system, I don't see the breakpoint inside
cancel_mouse_face break at all when I reproduce the recipe with "emacs -q".
