If you are wondering why nothing happens here: This being a fullscreen only problem makes it very hard to debug. I don't expect to get quick results here. It's also rather unimportant and only happens in a situation that should not occur normally.

My suspicion is that the OpenGL driver hooks itself into the window and this happening while the window is minimized not being well handled. if that is the case there isn't much to do except manually reacquiring the mouse later.

Let's make it short: This is basically not debuggable so I have no chance narrowing down the cause. It's also a mostly inconsequential quirk that only affects people doing weird stuff.

I am not going to spend more time on investigating.
