After a toolbar button is pressed the status bar message for the button is updated again. At that time, the mouse may already have moved to a complete other location. But the MFCStatusBar still wants to display the status bar message for the button ID again at that time. The 'Ready'-status bar text is displayed shortly after

I find it strange that you cannot reproduce this issue, because it's so simple. But never mind, I've posted a sample project as well as a video file. Watch the status bar text as soon as the 'Cancel'-button is pressed in the 'File Open'-dialog. It will show 'open an existing file' for a short while! That's the bug I mentioned, since the mouse cursor isn't positioned anymore above the 'Open'-button on the tool bar.

Thank you!

I'm sorry, I incorrectly set the product version to VS2010 although I'm using VS2010 SP1.
This has been updated.
