When the focus is taken away from a mousestate object via clicking on a textbox object, the mousestate seems to continue to activate even though it doesn't display visible evidence itself; somehow it still reports clicks, causing the output from a numberbox to be different than the number that it currently displays.
Steps to Reproduce:
Follow the instructions in the following patch.
When the textbox has the focus, the big numberbox should print out the number it is displaying.
The big numberbox prints out the number that would have been sent to it via a mouseclick being registered by the mousestate object... even though it doesn't display this number in the patch.

I'm trying to build a quicktime movie annotation system, in which, first, a mouse click outside of a text box registers the current time, and second, clicking on the textbox allows a description to be entered for that time; but the mousestate seems to capture the click on the textbox, even though it doesn't register visibly, making it impossible to capture the correct time for the annotation.
