Situation: TaskB depends on TaskA

Usually it's not possible to move TaskB before TaskA.
Except if you move TaskB before the start of the project. In that case you get the question whether this is allowed and if you click yes, TaskB's bar is still drawn at the same place, but the pointer from TaskA to TaskB points to where you have moved TaskB to.
If you then click on the bar of TaskB, the "virtual" bar where the pointer points to gets highlighted and you can move the "virtual" bar.

    This is just a drawing issue. When you drag the task before the project start, you create a date dependency. The predecessor dependency also exists. The latest of the two is used. The scheduling is correct, just the drawing of the link is wrong.
