Summary 07400: clickable artwork: dummy input listener is ignored
Description Clickable artwork: dummy input listener is ignored.

Test with ssimon, click on one of the sliders. MAME shouldn't 'hear' the input in this area since I've purposely written a dummy one before it. I've used this trick in a few other layouts.

Wrong bug description, the actual problem is that ssimon.lay "DUMMY" inputtag is ignored now.

Here's a workaround, but it does not fix the core issue. Canceling input listeners with a dummy tag is not possible in external artwork.

I'd argue that this was depending on emergent behaviour and not really a feature in the first place.

Ok, changed it: https://github.com/mamedev/mame/commit/6a857daed7cc1587c9ae63dd5cb426cc2f2bbebc
This one also works on external artwork, I'll have to let hydef know too (he used the DUMMY thing in a few of his external artwork)
