I see. Wasn't aware of that event handler property. In my opinion the 
name consumeAutoHidingEvents is still ok: the property is named 
onAutoHide, not onAutoHideEvent. Also, it does not make much sense for 
someone to add an autoHide event handler and then expecting it not to be 
fired because of consumeAutoHidingEvents...  Naturally the Javadoc could 
clarify that, too.
