Bug Description

After upgrading to Zim Wiki 0.64 from 0.63, I am unable to drag attachments from the attachment browser to my wiki page entry and have it automatically create a link on the wiki page to that file. The "create link" option will still work, but it was much easier/faster to be able to drag and drop. Dragging wiki pages from the "Index" tab onto a wiki page you are editing still creates the link to that was dragged from the Index tab. I am using Zim on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.

Hi, I just updated from 0.63 to 0.65 because I am using zim on Windows and the binaries got uploaded just recently. This completely destroys my workflow! Please fix this regression, I will go back to 0.63 until then.
