here's mine...

on mouseDown
     if "button" is not in the name of the target then grabWindow
     else pass mouseDown
end mouseDown

on grabWindow
     if the platform is "MacOS" and (the decorations of the \
            defaultStack contains "title" or the decorations of the \
            defaultStack is "default") then
          put 22 into myMenuCorrection
          put 0 into myMenuCorrection
     end if
     put "10,10,310,310" into myRect
     add myMenuCorrection to item 2 of myRect
     lock messages
     put (trunc(the width of this window/2) - the mouseH) into difH
     put (trunc(the height of this window/2) - the mouseV) into difV
     repeat until the mouse is up
          put the loc of this window into loc1
          put the screenMouseLoc into loc2
          add difH to item 1 of loc2
          add (difV + myMenuCorrection) to item 2 of loc2
          -- add (difV ) to item 2 of loc2
          if loc1 is not loc2 then set the loc of this window to loc2
     end repeat
     unlock messages
end grabWindow

You may want to adjust the mouseDown handler.
