> Sorry to jump on this so late after Chris' comment, but the reason that AXSelectedChildrenChanged didn't just do an updateNodeProperty(*notification.first, AXPropertyName::SelectedChildren) is because selected children determines the `accessibleNameForNode` for listboxes:
> // The Accname specification states that if the name is being calculated for a combobox
> // or listbox inside a labeling element, return the text alternative of the chosen option.
> AccessibilityObject::AccessibilityChildrenVector selectedChildren;
> if (axObject->isListBox())
>     selectedChildren = axObject->selectedChildren();
> And in turn, the accessibleNameForNode is a transitive component of several other properties. And whenever a property's dependency graph gets complex (as in this case), we fallback to updateNode to make sure everything is up-to-date.
> I'm guessing we don't have a testcase for this specific condition (we should add one if not).

Ah I see—will revert this to use updateNode. Let's definitely add that case in a follow-up. Thanks!
