Bad Crash on Attempt to Group Radio Buttons

I would find it very handy if when the cantSelect is true, you could still drag to select objects that are above the control with cantSelect true… 

In other words, the ability to select the other controls with click and drag when the initial click is within the rect of the control (usually a grc for me) that has cantSelect set to true.

It certainly is possible to select the controls above the control with cantSelect true… but only if the initial click is outside that rect.

I hope all of that makes sense.
