Bug Description

If I try to drag an Icon in Nautilus somtimes the "drop" fails. I can see the mouse arrow and the "grab hand" at the same time. I can then move the mouse, but I can't klick. I have to kill Nautilus.

This can also happen, if I start a drag in Totem. But until now it never happens if I drag and drop an icon in the Unity Launcher or from the Dash to the Launcher.

Ok, some additional informations.

In Unity 3D I can't tap the titlebar and drag the window.

In Unity 2D I can drag the window and Drag and Drop in Nautilus works as expected. Any touch action feels better in Unity 2D
