DragDrop makes windows unresponsive OS X

Hi all. 

Might just be me. I drag drop text onto a field with a dragdrop handler that essentially puts the drag data ["text"] into itself. Doing so with 8.1.3 seems to cause the window to become unresponsive, that is none of the controls work. I cannot click in fields, tab around, click buttons etc. However if I navigate to another window, and then back again it becomes responsive. Also, if I move the window with the title bar, it becomes responsive again. Finally, if I exit to top at the end of the dragdrop handler, THAT makes the window responsive. It's as though the dragdrop message is still in effect in limbo somewhere. 

This seems to be a somewhat recent development. That is, I don't think it has always been this way. Particularly in 8.0.x and prior, but I could not pin it down to a minor version.
