I'm using SeaMonkey 2.0.11 mail, SeaMonkey Modern theme, and the classic view with the folder pane on the left side.  My mail folders are under "Local Folders".  If I select multiple mail folders to be moved, and drag them over another folder and release the mouse button, only one of the folders gets moved.  The remaining folders do not get moved as expected, and remain in their original positions.  I get the same result when using control-pick to select the folders.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create folders named aaa, aab, aac, and aad under "Local Folders" for testing.
2. Pick folder aaa and shift-pick aac (to include aab).
3. Drag the 3 highlighted folders over aad and release the mouse button.

Actual Results:  
Only folder aaa gets moved, aab and aac remain highlighted in their original location.

Expected Results:  
Since all 3 folders were selected I expected all 3 folders to be moved.

Moving multiple folders simultaneously is a time saver, particularly when there are many folders in the window (requiring a scrollbar).  Selecting several near the top, dragging them to the bottom to cause scrolling, then dropping them on a lower folder is easier than doing them individually (since scrolling is also required).
I can reproduce it with 2.0.11 (Linux classic theme).
