DragDrop makes windows unresponsive OS X

Just tried a simple test on Mac OS Sierra / LC8.1.3 and it seems to work fine here. Is there anything else that could be interfering with the dragDrop?

Maybe the Message Watcher could give a clue as to what is happening.

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.
