When dragging, or holding the mouse down in general the mouse tends to 'let go'. In some situations the mouse grabs *through* the window. For example, I may be scrolling in okular and suddenly find myself dragging an item in the browser below. The behavior is independent of the application (it may fall through Dolphin onto Okular just as easily).

Highlighting text is the worst performing... It usually takes two to three goes to get the right range.

Is this a known issue? Known solution?
