Grabbing a widget

is problematic.

I have an SVG widget called "h5" which I am trying to drag to a drop target,
which should be easy-peasy, but isn't.

LiveCode 8.1.8

The widget contains this code:

on mouseDown
    grab me
end mouseDown

on mouseUp
    if intersect(widget "h1", widget "h5",5) then
       set the loc of widget "h5" to the loc of widget "h1"
       set the loc of widget "h5" to 99,364
       end if
end mouseUp

which is nothing spectacular.

HOWEVER in Edit mode widget "h5" moves around with the mouse!

It does NOT get grabbed on a MouseDown as it should.
