Cursor skips viewport when dragging window with touchpad
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:57 EST

numbered from left to right, the cursor jumps to viewport 3, wich is displayed.
The window, which was being dragged from 1 to 2 shows as partially on viewport
1 and partially on viewport 2.
Viewport 2 should be displayed with the cursor still grabbing the window being
