Well I haven't tried Linux but this behavior happens on both Mac and Windows.

And Paul, thanks for the card script idea.  I started out trying things in the card script but when I got the sporadic behavior I decided it was because a card is technically not a control.  Not sure about that.  In any event I'm sorry to report the script you've given me still isn't stopping the cursor from remaining a circle with a line through it without changing to the plus sign.  I'll continue to experiment.  Have you tried really slowly dragging a file onto a stack window from the desktop to see if it changes to the circle with a line through it even though you've got this in your card's script:

on dragEnter
    set the dragAction to "copy"
end dragEnter
