Running 3.8.1, in XFCE under Debian Wheezy.

When I attempt to drag and drop, sometimes once I left-click on the message and drag it to the folder name, the cursor turns into a black-edged white circle, and the move succeeds; other times, the cursor changes as above but with a + symbol inside the circle, and then the move fails, and I have to resort to the meny item to Move.

                           greatly annoy us who do.
