Hmm, OK. So normally the first click on a non‐selected NSWindow makes
that NSWindow key (i.e. it selects the frame without registering an
emacs mouse down event), but by enabling no-accept-focus we prevent
the NSWindow becoming key, and the click is then actually registered
as a mouseDown event (therefore causing an Emacs mouse down event).

There’s also a mouseMoved method that says ‘Tell emacs the mouse has
moved.’, but I’m unsure how it does that, or if it’s even relevant. I
don’t think it sends any events unless you have
mouse-autoselect-window set. mouseDragged just calls mouseMoved, so
Emacs must be doing its own mouse move/drag detection elsewhere.

mouseMoved is called every time the mouse pointer moves on an Emacs
frame whether it’s selected or not.

Is it possible a move is being registered because the click was in
frame X, but frame Y is selected? I noticed while testing this that
ns_mouse_position is sometimes (always?) called for multiple frames
when one mouse click has been made.

And, actually, I’m not sure if it’s a bug, but the X and Y coords
returned are for the frame ns-mouse-position is being run from, rather
than from the frame it lists in its output...

*sigh* try this:

+      view = FRAME_NS_VIEW (f);
       position = [[view window] mouseLocationOutsideOfEventStream];
       position = [view convertPoint: position fromView: nil];
