That is correct. When ClickThrough is set, all mouse detection is turned off for the skin. You can override that by holding down CTRL while you interact with the skin with the mouse.

Edit: The documentation wasn't entirely clear on this, which I have corrected.

I think this is normal. When the Click through is on, the skin act like it would be transparent and as such it can't react to mouse hovering over it.
