Selecting multiple mails and dragging them to a folder (in this case from an
IMAP folder to a local folder) sometimes acts as though I've let go of the mouse
button and re-clicked it. To wit, the mail drops in the wrong folder and I then
find myself dragging some other folder (not the one that the mail was dropped into).

At first I assumed that I was in fact unclicking and reclicking accidentally,
but I have tried this repeatedly, carefully forcing the button down, and
repeatedly had this problem.

Reproducible: Sometimes
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select multiple mails (in my experience from an IMAP folder)
2. Drag over a large number of folders in the folder pane (I probably cross over
20 or so folders, some of them nested 1 deep)

Actual Results:  1. The mails will drop into a "random" (haven't determined
pattern) folder and I "pick up" another "random" folder.
2. When I unclick at my destination, the second "random" folder is moved there.

Expected Results:  Mails should drop into destination.

I've raised this to Major because it has caused me to repeatedly lose mails
among my several dozen folders. No data is actually lost, but it is very
possible to "misplace" data such that you are unlikely to find it again (given
the size of some of my folders).

Using trunk build:
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.1a) Gecko/20020619

I am able to drag mutiple mesgs (say 10) over mutliple folders and
mail accounts. And I don't lose them till I get to my destination
folder (a folder under Local Accounts). They aren't accidentally
droped into another folder.

I think you are running into bug 150716, which was fixed on June 13.
That bug had problem with 'moving/dragging' multiple messages.
Since you reported your bug with june 11th, I'm guessing your running
into that bug.

So if you could try a more current trunk build and see if you still
run into this problem, it would be appreciated.
