When I have seen window being nil in edebug, the mouse-pointer was
hovering over an Emacs window, AFAICT.  Unfortunately, the nil value
is sporadic, I don't know how to induce it (when, as I believe was the
case, the mouse-pointer is over an Emacs window).

Perhaps the mouse-pointer was indeed over the scroll-bar, or maybe the
tool bar or menu bar, is it the same with these, too?  I will take
another look at this.

I will try to do this sometime today, time permitting.
