Yup, it's a move of the window, not a drag, that needs cancelling.
Or rather, a drag of an icon inside the window that turns into an
accidental window move due to mouse positioning inaccuracy.  I'd
like a way to cancel the window move, so the window goes back to
its original position.  I can manually reposition it, but making it
pixel perfect is a pain (inbox, mail folders and other windows all
nicely arranged just touching, so accidentally dragging the inbox
window is annoying).
