What happens when you release the mouse button depend on which line in
the original window you were.  If you were on the first line, then
mouse-drag-track (which see) tries to scroll the display, and as
result you end up with the above effect.

Look at mouse-drag-track, and I think things will become clearer.  Not
sure if the logic there is entirely correct, I think it might "assume"
too much when the end event gives no usable position on another frame.

It does vanish when I release the mouse button.
