Scrollbar control and auto complete confusion

In livecode 8.1.7 (RC2), I drag a scrollbar to the window of a new stack. I the scrollbar script, I put the following code:

on dragLeave

	answer  “here"

end dragLeave

The “dragLeave” message is shown in the autocomplete list. There are numerous other entries in the autocomplete list in the IDE editor, that look like messages that are sent for various operations.

I get nothing when I move the scroll with the mouse. Same behavior for “slider” and “scrollbar” controls in 9.0.0 (DP9).

What’s up? Is this a bug, confusion on my part? Seems non-intuitive. It seems to me that there are a LOT of entries in the auto-complete list that do nothing relevant to the control. If I put the handler in the stack script, I also get nothing.
