Mouse events continue to be fired while you hold a mouse button.  The
browser window may also be maximized, putting one or more edges of the
window against the edge of the screen, which shouldn't cause incorrect
deltas.  (I think deltas should logically represent mouse movement,
not cursor movement.)
