On macOS?  Or in general?  (And why doesn't this report include all
the details collected by "M-x report-emacs-bug"?)

AFAIU, this is outside of Emacs, right?

> #+NAME: `M-x customize` Mouse Autoselect Window
>    Non-nil means autoselect window with mouse pointer. Hide

And how is this part relevant?
