No, that's not it. IIRC a good bit of the UI layer was changed a while
back. I think earlier iterations were a little more purely derived
from the Qt widgets, so using the mouse just inherently worked for a
lot of them (even though you couldn't see the pointer). That was
changed a while back, I think (though I can't remember how long ago).
There are probably a few places where clicking with the mouse may still
work (apparently some of the settings pages), but it's the exception
rather than the rule.
There's a major UI layer overhaul in progress. The new UI layer relies
more on OpenGL (if you have it) for lots of eye candy, though there's a
Qt fallback mode, I think. The mouse-enabling patch that was recently
posted is meant to work with this new UI code; I don't konw whether
it'll be included in the 0.20 release or not.
