    mouse: Fix pointer grabbing in server mode
    Trying to click on spice-gtk window while in server mode should result
    in a pointer grab. This is currently failing, with the cursor wrapping
    to the top left corner of the window instead without being grabbed.
    This is caused by our use of gtk_event_box_set_above_child(),
    when clicking on the SpiceWidget, the grab is implicitly taken by
    the window which is above the event box (which is an internal
    GtkEventBox input-only GdkWindow). Then when we call gdk_pointer_grab()
    on the GtkEventBox::window, we get a grab-broken event indicating the
    grab was transferred from the internal input-only window to
    GtkEventBox::window (see gtk+ bug
    https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=769635#c2 for a detailed
    This commit ignores grab-broken events when the GdkWindow who got the
    grab corresponds to the one we called gdk_pointer_grab() on.
    An alternative would be to call gdk_pointer_grab() on the GdkWindow
    which received the button-press-event, but the call chain between
    button_event() and the eventual gdk_pointer_grab() call, so it would be
    not so elegant to pass the correct GdkWindow all the way.
