0.4.0-dev patched with 0001-fix-stuck-mouse.patch and compiled using cmake. No problems to be seen and it seems i cant replicate the bug.

The mouse feature stops working for me at times too, usually when i click diffrent windows in rapid succession.

I use urxvt and xfc4 with compositioning turned on. No screen or tmux here.

buffers.pl is also used.

Can you please test with screen, and without any multiplexer, to know if the problem is specific to tmux or not.
As far as I know, I never heard about such problems from users with screen.

Tmux is quite young compared to screen, and such problem would not surprise me, that's why I'm asking that, to know if problem is in tmux or WeeChat (or even both).

There are two different symptoms here that may be related:

1) Sometimes Weechat ignores all mouse clicks.  Toggling /mouse disable /mouse enable doesn't solve the issue, and /debug mouse shows no output.  However, the mouse functionality is restored if the mouse wheel is moved.  This behaviour has been noticed when using PuTTY and MinTTY on Windows, and iTerm2 on OSX.  This state of non-responsiveness remains when detaching the terminal and reconnecting from another machine/terminal emulator.  Starting VIM in another session confirms that mouse support is still working with other applications.

2) Occasionally WeeChat doesn't act on mouse-clicks, but instead outputs a short string of seemingly random characters - for instance "M#,)" (is WeeChat missing or ignoring the ESC?).  I've noticed this when using MinTTY on Windows, but it may not be specific to this, as I use this configuration more than any other.

I am using WeeChat with tmux, although I think I may have experienced this problem with screen also (but not 100% certain).  I mentioned my symptoms detailed in (1) in #weechat, where one other user stated that he had also occasionally experienced this.
