(frame-selected-window (posn-window position)) might not be the window
under the mouse cursor.

​You are correct.  Though in testing 5 different mouse key bindings it was correct 4 out of 5 times because the depress part of the cross-frame drag event selected the window of the depress which is probably more accurate than existing results.  I agree though that there may be uses of drag events where one does not want to select the window of the depress.

​Please ignore the above paragraph as I wasn't thinking about the end part of the drag.

This speaks to my point in my most recent prior message, "If we just had a way to get a window from a set of coordinates within a frame, then I think this would help solve a lot of this."  If the event-end of Emacs mouse drag events included a window, rather than a frame, when the endpoint of the drag is at a position unique to a window (considering Z-frame order), I think that would solve all these issues and simplify parts of the posn code.

​Just read the above paragragph.

Bob
