The only other suggestion I have is to have multiple dragDrop routines: 
one in the original button so if the user effectively cancels the drag 
by letting the mouse go on that button, you can handle it as if it was 
mouseUp. Then in the stack or card or destination object, have another 
dragDrop that actually deals with the dropped data.
