My memory that far back is sketchy, but I think it may have been to
do with mouse highlighting. There have long been bugs in mouse
highlighting that show up under Windows, but not X, and it has often
confused me when I have found a fix for such bugs and wondered why the
fix was not necessary on X. In such cases I decide to play it safe
and not backport the change to X.
