I don't think it is related to the compilation itself, I think
there just needs to be a lot of activity that slows down the
emulator's responsiveness.

I just reproduced it with a filer window while doing a
large amount of file copying.

I just reproduced it with a filer window, so probably any window.

Only happens in windowed mode.

I had 1024x768 at 8pp active. But also happens in 800x600 at 32bpp which
I just tried.

Follow Host Mouse mode. Does not happen in capture mode.

My theory would be that moving the host mouse beyond the emulator
window's bounds results in an illegal mouse position update.
