How to do not miss onmouseup?

I'm trying to implement something like JSplitPane in JavaScript. Generally it works fine besides one thing. If a user moves divider too fast, browser takes onmousemove control from a divider element and tries to drag and drop it on its own. So if a user released mouse button, then onmouseup event is missed as well and my control stays in drag mode. Is any way to get full control of mouse? Should I call setCapture? In which context?
