When dragging and dropping an _email_ and releasing it quickly it
will _not_ expand the folder.

When dragging and dropping a _folder_ and releasing it quickly it
_will_ expand the folder.

It is the latter behaviour (dropping folders) I want to inhibit the
auto expansion.

Sorry I generated confusion by assuming the behaviours were
