One more clue: On a frame that doesn't accept focus on a mac, a single
click results in a mouse-movement getting fired immediately after the
down-mouse-1. A single click on a normal frame does not do this. This is
why this issue doesn't repro on a frame that accepts focus. Something about
how the non-focusable frames are causes them to get mouse moves immediately
after a click. This means that the transient map created in
mouse-drag-track immediately gets invoked with a mouse-movement, which is
what triggers the scroll. As mentioned earlier in the thread, this is only
true if the mouse has moved since the last click. That means if you click
twice in row, only the first click will get a mouse-movement fired after
it. If you then move the mouse and click again, it'll fire the down-mouse-1
then the mouse-movement again.

Perhaps someone who understands the way that mouse tracking works on mac
would know why a frame that doesn't accept focus behaves differently? It's
as if the non-focusable window only gets notified of a mouse's new position
whenever a click happens, so every click is as if the click happened and
then the mouse moved to that position.
