[opensource-dev] Camera UI in Second Life beta viewer is broken

That happens because the clicks work by going down a hierarchy, it goes
down the window backgrounds first, then works through the children UI
elements of that window, passing around the click message until it hits the
lowest level.

When you click outside the windows it passes through to the 3D world. Even
if visually there is a button.

The problem being that the window *must* cover all the child elements
