The Abort Event Processing restart aborts event processing for only
the current event.

MCL doesn't do as much work for you on mouse up events as it does
on mouse down events. This assymetry is probably what confuses you.
You may want to define a window-mouse-down-event-handler that
calls view-unclick-event-handler (to coin a name):

(defclass mouse-up-window (window) ())

(defmethod view-unclick-event-handler ((view t) where)
  (declare (ignore where))

; If you prefer to change the mouse-up behavior globally,
; specialize this method on WINDOW instead of MOUSE-UP-WINDOW.
; You'll need to bind *warn-if-redefine* and *warn-if-redefine-kernel*
; to NIL around the definition or a continuable error will be signalled.
(defmethod window-mouse-up-event-handler ((w mouse-up-window))
     (wptr w) (pref *current-event* :eventRecord.where))))
