That's not what I experienced...
Thius is what happens here:
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-)

Means the Widget (selected or not!) sticks to the mouse in EDIT mode and 
I cannot get rid of it unless I delete the widget or close the stack.

That cannot be desired behavior!?
Maybe will create a screen movie later...
