QOpenGLWidget turns black when mouse exits view area, on macOS.

  • On macOS, whenever the mouse exists the view area of the QOpenGLWidget, the view turns black. If I trigger a repaint, it is visible again, until the mouse exits.

    On Windows, the application behaves correctly.

    I have no idea what is going on. I am certainly not doing anything whenever the mouse enters or exits the view.

    I have tried 5.9.1 and 5.10.1

    Does anybody have any ideas?
