You missed that I said that protocol was from the Athena build; however,
it is exactly the same in the GTK build with toolkit scrollbars
disabled.  With GTk scrollbars enabled, the highlighting doesn't
disappear at all.

Again, AFAICT the highlighting does not disappear when GTK scrollbars
are enabled.

It's the same for me when I do this with the GTK scrollbars disabled,
the execution does not stop at cancel_mouse_face:

Breakpoint 3, Fdelete_other_windows_internal (window=141773653, root=139210986)
    at /data/steve/bzr/emacs/quickfixes/src/window.c:2569
2569      w = decode_any_window (window);
(gdb) br cancel_mouse_face
Breakpoint 19 at 0x80acc38: file /data/steve/bzr/emacs/quickfixes/src/xdisp.c, 
line 27545.
(gdb) c

At this point, the highlighting has vanished.  But when I set the
breakpoint with GTK scrollbars enabled, execution stops many times:

Breakpoint 19, cancel_mouse_face (f=0x87349c8)
    at /data/steve/bzr/emacs/quickfixes/src/xdisp.c:27545
27545     Mouse_HLInfo *hlinfo = MOUSE_HL_INFO (f);
(gdb) c

At each break, a portion of the scroll bar is redisplayed.  For example,
after typing C-x 2, execution stops and the scroll bar vanishes.  When I
type c, the upper portion is redisplayed, then execution stops.  Next c,
the upper scroll bar vanishes but the lower one is redisplayed, then
execution stops.  Then the upper scroll bar is redisplayed again,
completing the window splitting, and the execution returns to the
command loop.  However, throughout this process, as long as the mouse
pointer remains over the mouse-face propertized text, it remains
highlighted.  Likewise after Fdelete_other_windows_internal.
