Trying to move (drag-drop) sets of messages/threads when in threaded mode does 
not work -- at all(the drag icon would show, but nothing happens); Moving single 
threads does not work either. However, single *messages* do work, just like 
moving sets of messages (Caps-click selection) in unthreaded mode.
Apart from the obvious bug in not being able to move sets of messages in 
threaded mode, it is counterintuitive -- threads should behave just like single,
individual messages. This is all refered to IMAP folders.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Select threaded view
2.Select a set of messages/threads
3.Try to drag them to another folder.

Actual Results:  
NOP. The move operation simply will not be performed. After the drag icon 
disappears in the drop target, nothing happens.

Expected Results:  
Move the set of messages/*threads* (this is important) to the drop target 
(another IMAP folder)
