Yes, that was the answer. Somehow I overlooked it.

As a little starter for those who need it here is a little script.

Without the wait command, the mouse movement is not visible.

on mouseUp
   get the topleft  of this stack
   add 10 to item 1 of it
   add 30 to item 2 of it
   put 1 into x
   put the width of this stack * 2 into n
   repeat n
      if item 1 of it >= the right of this stack then
         put x * -1 into x
      end if
      add x to item 1 of it
      set the screenMouseLoc to it
      wait 1
   end repeat
end mouseUp
