Hi all,

here my recipe macOS 10.13.5, LC 9:
1. Create a stack
2. Create a SVG widget
3. Add this script to the SVG:
on mouseDown
  grab me
end mouseDown
4. Switch to POINTER tool
5. Nothing happens, no GRAB on mousedown!
6. Switch back to EDIT tool and move the mouse to the stack with the SVG,
et voila paranoia 8-)
