Description

Obs
---
Playing the game in windowed mode affects sometimes the taskbar under the game window.
I think, the mouse on the desktop doesn't get disabled.

Happens in vehicle turrets.

Repro
-----
  1. Get in an armed Humvee (as gunner)
  2. Keep moving your aim down to the right
  3. And eventually you'll hit the "show desktop" button.

Noticed this in Windows7 64bit. Moving the mouse far in any direction can make Windows 7 transparancy feature kick in; thus making the game go invisible. Clicking will deselect the game.

"Far in any direction" is a bit vague - what are the exact repro steps?

Can't help with repro, but I've seen the mouseover popup messages show up from taskbar programs when playing windowed on W7 x64.
