Bug Description

To reproduce:

1. Open the dash and find a .png file
2. Start dragging the file

As soon as the drag starts the size of the icon that represents the file will change!

Desired resolution:
- when a user starts to drag a icon, the size or shape of the icon should not change
- The icon should continue to be exactly the same icon that is displayed in the Dash
