DragDrop Bug

BTW I am dragging text from another application. I have never seen this dragging text from within Livecode. And what is being dragged is text from an email app although there are other sources like PDF's which is why I have to clean up the text before setting any LC field to the result.

Part of the time dragging and dropping text onto these fields will cause the controls on the card to become unresponsive. I cannot click buttons, I cannot change the focus. Simply clicking the titlebar of the window resolves this. Also focusing on another window and back again will resolve it. Switching apps and back again will resolve it. It's as though the stack loses focus and I have to force the stack to gain focus again, although visually it is the top stack.
