B_NO_POINTER_HISTORY has no effect

BeOS R5 has a flag that Views can set - B_NO_POINTER_HISTORY - useful for when MouseMoved hooks take a lot of processing and can't keep up with the speed of new mouse messages.
One example of where this is used is in the column view of Tracker, which exhibits slow resizing in Haiku (#160).
I've written a small test app to compare R5 and Haiku behaviour, attached below. It shows B_NO_POINTER_HISTORY does not seem to have any effect in Haiku.
