When selecting some lines of text and trying to drag and drop it, the mouse-cursor (with moved selection attached) hangs up and X-Server freezes in.

I'm using KDE4 with Composition enabled!

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select Text (seems to happen more often when more lines of Text are selected)
2. Drag Selection somewhere else (Selection follows Mouse _very_ slowly)
3. Drop it somewhere else on the page
Actual Results:  
Depends. Sometimes selection goes back to where it came from, but _ultra-slow_, but othertimes X-Servers freezes for some minutes.

Expected Results:  
Selection should at least move faster. Best thing to happen would be no animation of text moving back at all, I think.

Bug seems to be linux only but Distro-independent.It seems to happen under Kubuntu as well as Arch-Linux.
