[x3d-public] passive vs. active mouse isOver event

In Tony's old Flux and before, in cosmo and now in BSContct and other 
latest, when the geomtry moves then the isOver becomes active.


When the X grows to be under the pointer, then the event happens.
This is sign that sensors are active. Does the event need to be 
expresed in the same frame as the geometry was moved?
I hope it depends upon the the author's choice. Maybe it actually 
matters to the esimulation. Again an important step or steps in the 
sequence of discovering what has happened since the last frame.
