not sure if it would help but you can record a trace of mouse data (just click randomly throughout the window the same as you believe would trigger the bug in weechat) with

 perl -E ' print "\e[?1005h\e[?1002h" '
 cat >mouse_log

hit Ctrl+D Ctrl+D to finish the recording and append the file here

would also be interesting if /set weechat.look.mouse_timer_delay to a higher value changes anything?

Symptom: Mouse input isn't detected, "M#Z]" or similar displayed in input bar.

Steps to reproduce: Using MinTTY on Windows, click randomly in the Weechat window - about 5% of the time the above symptom will occur.

Notes: I have tried to reproduce this with VIM - but the problem does not occur there.  It appears this is specific to Weechat when used with the MinTTY terminal emulator.

We discussed this in the IRC channel some months ago, and came to the conclusion that MinTTY is sometimes splitting the mouse button control characters over multiple packets.
