mousemove events have valid mozMovementX and Y values, but if that event object is saved somewhere and processed later, the value of mozMovementX is 0. This is quite surprising and a problem for web pages that want to process the event info later. For example, if you receive such an event and do a setTimeout whose closure captures the event, the timeout will print 0 for mozMovementX. The attached testcase shows this, search for 'zz' to see the relevant lines. Looking in the web console it is clear mozMovementX is valid when received, but zero'd out later.
nsDOMUIEvent::DuplicatePrivateData() should handle also movementX/Y
As an aside, this test case is triggering bug 731350 for me when I go fullscreen.
seems like there's a rash of tracking flags being reset going around. fixing. we're tracking this for 14.
I wanted to run this through try server before updating, but now that I've done that, this looks good. https://tbpl.mozilla.org/?tree=Try&rev=6d128e6de11b
