Drag-Drop in XML editor sometimes fail
In XML editor, using drag-drop to move an element from one group to another group fail after two or more similar operations: the drag-drop is applied to an element which is not the element selected.
Workaround: wait a rather long time, then the drag-drop operates as wanted for few operations and failed again after.
Workaround(bis): close the file and open again.
Version: Inkscape 0.47, Windows XP sp2
Context: the svg file is a medium size file 120 KB, containing a collection of icons drawing. The structure is simple; it is a list of group with one path per group, but not arranged in logical order. I create new groups (one per icon drawing) and use the XML editor to move each group/path belonging to an icon to the corresponding new group.
Apparently, the software does not update immediately the pointers between internals structures, and after few operations, the drag-drop is applied to an element which is not the the element selected. However, the selection marker on the drawing page is always correct.
