when I use xfce for a while, drag & drop sometimes suddenly stops working correctly.
When I drag something to somewhere, the cursor changes like usual, but as soon as I release the mouse button, the dragged object floats back to where I started.
For example, dragging a link in firefox to the tab bar or to a bookmark folder doesn't work anymore.
thunar's behavior is more strange. Sometimes it behaves as I said before, sometimes it lets me drag files only to some folders, while the others won't work and after restarting thunar the number of folders, that work, changes.
After starting up xfce, everything works fine for a while. I haven't found out yet, what causes it to stop working.
Same issue here. Intermittent issue, since I tried to recreate the issue, but cannot. It just shows up every once and a while.

I found out, that it somehow has to do with yakuake (a drop-down console) in my case, because killing yakuake made drag&drop work again. On my laptop, yakuake doesn't make any problems.
