Test code:

(setq mouse-leave-buffer-hook '((lambda ()
                                  (message "Leaving %s" (current-buffer)))))

And then mouse-click.  And, indeed, it's run even when not changing a

... Uhm, OK, that was a slightly different thing.  Try this:

(setq mouse-leave-buffer-hook '((lambda ()
                                  (message "Leaving %s" (selected-window)))))

The hook is run three times in the selected window, and then it's run
once in the new buffer:

Leaving #<window 110 on sel.el> [3 times]
Leaving #<window 114 on *Messages*>

So the problem isn't just in call-interactively -- the hook is called a
lot -- on any mouse click, and whether we switch windows or not, and
both before and after the switch.

I'm guessing we can't change this at this point, so I'll just adjust the
doc string to reflect the current state of affairs instead.
