Sure, that's part of the mess I had in mind... 

I expect, that even Qt doesn't get noticed of any mouse events into the 
flash controlled area, but you can prove me wrong by reimplementing the 
QMouse{Press,Release}Event of the QWebView, (see QMouseEvent doc) and 
installing an event filter on it for your events, too.  

If you receive any events, fine, try to handle them yourself, otherwise 
you're in the business of intercepting (IOW horribly messing with) system 
or even os (windows) version dependant events of input devices (given, that 
macromedia doesn't provide some kind of interface, do they?).
