           Summary: Mouse: multi-file "selection" & drag behavior broken
           Product: Wine
           Version: 20050628
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: major
          Priority: P2
         Component: wine-gui
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: masochisthalo at yahoo.com

Trying out both June's and May's release of Wine, I
noticed that there is some wierd behavior when
selecting multiple files and dragging within an
application.  It basically makes the ability to select
and drag files unusable.

On (at least), these last two releases, I select
multiple-files in an application "explorer-like" 
menu, and the moment I try to drag, the
multi-select turns into a one-file select. 
Furthermore, the app enters into a state where it
thinks I am holding the mouse down dragging the one
file around.  Minimizing and maximizng the app doesn't
work either; in previous versions, when I couldn't
drag a file from one window to the other, I'd
minimize/ maximize the app (which would "reset"
things), and I could drag files once again.

In my case, I am using AbsoluteFTP; as you guessed,
its an FTP app.  If you can imagine, within it, there
are two windows that look like the file Explorer on
Windows.  On the left, is the local machine and the
right is the box you've FTPed into.  On wine-20041201,
I can hold down shift and select >2 files on the
remote box.  Then using my mouse, drag them to my
localbox.  So, there are no problems here.

Also, on my CodeWright application, I can no longer
highlight text by dragging the mouse across code.

Any ideas?  I'm sure it will ring a bell for someone
who may have been working towards improving the mouse
dragging capabilities.
