[PyKDE] determining origin of resize events

I've been looking at all the events that are generated while I resize the 
window. Unfortunately, before I click the mouse on the resize handle, 
a 'leave' event is generated, and the subsequent events are moves, resizes, 
or paints, and no mouse events seem to be generated anymore.

Or am I missing a way to check the mouse button status from within the 
resizeEvent handler?
