This Blogpost has a workaround

This post is for natty but it's the same problem with oneiric.
wxwidgets is still version 2.8.11

I manually downloaded and installed the following packages in this order from the natty-repository because there is no oneiric repo:

(you may have to install libesd0, too)

there is also a i386 repo

Now drag and drop works!

I have the same problem on 64 bit Ubutnu and I have a serious question now

Since several releases Filezilla ist absolutely unstable and nearly unusable with Ubuntu.
Why must I manually install files from an external reposity in order to get this fixed?

This is not only an effect its a serious BUG

Sorry... but enough is enough: As soon as my time allows it, I will switch back to Debian.

I confirm the same bug in Ubuntu 11.10 64 bits, I've installed the latest wxWidgets (8.12) and still doesn't work

It depends on wxwidgets version. You should install 2.8.12, instead of 2.8.11 provided in Oneiric official repos.
Find the source on (you'll have to compile it by yourself) or type the following in a terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:n-muench/programs-ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
