Description

Build: 2000111108, Mac OS 9.0

To reproduce:
* Drag a splitter (such as the sidebar splitter) outside the window in which the
  splitter exists.

What happens:
* When you let go of the mouse button, the drag is finalized and the splitter
  takes up its new position.

What should happen:
* Whenever the mouse is outside the window, the splitter should return to its
  original position so that a drop has no effect.

This would make it hard to collapse the sidebar by dragging the splitter.

No, we could ignore slight overshots.  In Mac 4.x, the drop will still work
until you overshoot the edge of the window by about 100 pixels.  Nice touch, no
time for it though.  ->evaughan/future/helpwanted

Frankie, does this still reproduce for you?

The behavior still exists as described, but I must confess I don't get why it's a bug.
