Description of the change

Changed the MouseArea{} enabled: property to visible:

This still stops the mouse cursor changing when the performance overlay is enabled but the mouse cursor behaves as intended when the performance overlay isn't active.

To Test:

1. Compile UITK and test the code sample from the bug report. The mouse should behave as intended and the cursor should be displayed as a cross.

2. Set the performance overlay to be active "export PERFORMANCE_OVERLAY=true". Test the sample again and the mouse cursor should be displayed as a regular arrow pointer. Click the screen 4 times and the overlay will appear.

3. Disable the overlay "export PERFORMANCE_OVERLAY=". Test the sample again and the cursor should be back to a cross.

Only make the MouseArea visible when its needed.

This feels a bit weird to me, that the MouseArea steals the cursor. I've tested an MR of mine (SplitView in subject) where I had the topmost component a Window, in which there was an active MouseArea, and that did not steal the resize cursor from the SplitView's resize handlers... I feel we need to dig more on this...

I agree. I expected the mouse focus to propagate through to the underlying app, but it doesn’t and the containsMouse property for the app's MouseArea doesn't seem to get set to true under any conditions.

I should have more time to look at this in a couple of weeks, can you suggest anything to look for?

Dan, Loic removed the PerformanceOverlay from MainView. The MainWindow Christian will land soon won't have that either. Let's wait till all these land, and then perhaps we can get rid of this annoying thing, so you won't need this MR anymore.

It would appear to be unnecessary now so I Rejected the MR.
