Bug Description

Binary package hint: unity

Using the natty alpha2 version, often doing alt-leftclick-dnd doesn't work on the focussed dialog, it selects text like if alt was not pressed, it does work if the dialog is unfocussed though.

One example from a livecd session:
- open the session indicator, select restart
- try to alt-click-dnd, that doesn't work
- click on nautilus once and try again on the restart dialog, it works

This bug seems to have been ignored through A3 cycle, have added milestones and given it an initial priority, so we can get it on the "to be fixed" radar.

this bug should have been fixed with the latest rand of upload AFAIK. Can people getting it confirm it's fixed?

happens if you dnd from viewport to viewport
