#836 Moving symbol is blocking mouse events


With PCManFM 1.2.0 on testing this bug (https://sourceforge.net/p/pcmanfm/bugs/788/) I have noticed that the moving symbol does block mouse events. For example if I'm moving a file, releasing it and very fast trying to move it again there is a high chance I'm hitting with the mouse the moving symbol which is preventing me then from moving the file. Maybe the moving symbol should simply forward all input events.

    Thank you very much.
    Unfortunately this behavior is not controllable by application, it is the X server who draws the drag-and-drop animations and I'm not sure if that can be altered at all.
