Arguably, yes.  I wrote that in my message.

The safety of fixing it depends on what the fix is.  Based on my
knowledge of the intricacies of handling events that happen while
certain widgets belonging to the toolkit are active, I'm guessing that
the fix will not be simple; any non-trivial change in this area runs a
high risk of breaking something UI-related (we had examples of this
just a few days ago, with Emacs frame positioning on Windows).

I could be wrong, of course, so if someone shows how to fix this
``easily'', I will probably change my mind.

You are talking about _intended_ consequences, whereas I fear the
_unintended_ ones.
