Bug Description

Binary package hint: gthumb

Using 2.11.3, i cannot move or copy files by drag and drop to the file tree. This is totally in broken in several stages:
First, a selection of thumbnails gets deselecten when starting a drag operation in favor of the dragged one. Can be circumvented by starting drag holding ctrl...
Second, only the draged one sticks to the mouse pointer shown as one full thumbnail, making it very hard to target a folder in the directory tree pane.
Third, after dropping the thumbnail, nothing happens.
This all works fine with gthumb on Ubuntu 10.04 for example.

2.11.3 is very obsolete, and it was a development release.

2.12.2 is the current stable release (upstream).

If the stock Ubuntu distro doens't have it, get it here: https://launchpad.net/~webupd8team/+archive/gthumb
