Fixed bug 3697 - Main thread gets stuck on left mouse down

Amruth Raj

- My app runs in full screen to play video(I use SDL_WINDOW_FULLSCREEN_DESKTOP)
- Cmd-tab to go out of full screen to another app
- Cmd-tab again to get back to my app
- Press left mouse button at one of the edges of the screen, don't release yet.
After this point the main thread is stuck until I release the left mouse button and hence video rendering doesn't happen anymore.

On debugging more, I see that thread 0 is stuck as shown below with sendEvent processing left mouse down. It comes out only after it receives a left mouse up. There are some frames below which show NSWindowResizing, but my window flag doesn't have SDL_WINDOW_RESIZABLE set.

I further noticed that while entering full screen in SDL_cocoawindow.m NSResizableWindowMask is set. If I clear it inside windowDidEnterFullScreen, then, the issue doesn't repro.

This is discussed at https://discourse.libsdl.org/t/main-thread-gets-stuck-on-left-mouse-down/22753/3 and thanks to Eric for the pointers.
