Maybe it is obvious, but it is not clear from your reply that you
realise that "normal tracking mode" is not used under Windows. By this

One idea is to have an "automatic" option for the "mouse" variable
that would use whatever method was available. But I am happy enough
with the way it works at present, as I said.
