Comment(by humdinger):

 > So, when you are dragging an object using a touch pad + double tap it is
 necessary to have a short delay between you raise your finger and an
 object being dragged to fall, in order to give you time to move your
 finger to the opposite side of a touch pad in order to continue dragging,
 if you haven't reached the desired aim.

 Apparently, I'm not a big touch pad user... I never even tried to
 tap&hold+drag. That really works after a bit of training![[BR]]
 Even cooler, and making your enhancement moot: when you reach the edge of
 your touchpad, the icon continues to float onwards. So, no need to lift
 your finger at all. (This is r33939 BTW)

 I don't think your proposed delay for repositioning your finger on the
 touchpad is a good one. If I lift my finger to drop the icon, I don't want
 to wait on a timeout. It should just drop instantly.
