bug#27846: 26.0.50; hover highlighting in an *occur* buffer

Severity: wishlist


While moving the mouse pointer over the text in an *occur* buffer,
I've just noticed that, if I move the mouse pointer over a line of
matched text, that line is highlighted, but _not_ including the line
number which precedes the matched text.

Conversely, if I move the mouse pointer over a line number, only it
(the line number) is highlighted (not including the text which follows

IMO, that separation is just bad.  IOW, I think it would be better to
always highlight together the line number and its corresponding
line(s) of matched text.

This would make easier to visually relate both items (line number and
line text), with is not trivial in cases where the matched text has a
fair amount of leading whitespace.
