[GRASS5] 100% cpu mouse bug

I'm mainly on a Mac and so haven't had nearly as much problem with this as
others--especially those on Cygwin where it was so bad as to make things
unusable. I'm also exclusively using the new GIS Manager where this is a
moot issue. 

So I really can't evaluate it. But I'm glad that it IS working better. I
haven't had time to seek out a Cygwin user and ask if it's better for them
