Visible in GWorkspace and GNUMail. (Probably in other places too, but here it's 4 am and I can't verify now). GNUMail runs natively on OS X so I must suppose that this is a bug.

I hope you are more awake now ... please could I have more information.
I've recently fixed several bugs in DnD and was hoping I had it working pretty much fully as documented at last (I guess that may not be the same thing as working exactly like MacOS-X ... but I hope it is). However, until now the mouse offset argument when starting a DnD session has been ignored completely, and as there is no experience using it, I'm not sure I've got it right ... but that's one possible place to look for changes in behavior.

Anyway ... If you could give me exact descriptions of where this appears wrong (and ideally the CVS version and the point in the GWorkspace/GNUMail source code that the DnD is initiated) I can make more of an attempt at understanding iwhat the issue might be.

I've looked at GWorkspace and dragging icons on the shelf.
The DnD here appears to be initiated in [FSNIcon(DraggingSource) startExternalDragOnEvent:] and this code appears to say that the bottom left corner of the image should be positioned at the current mouse location. Looking at it on my system, the visible icon image actually appears a few pixels above and to the right of the the mouse pointer ... if the image has a transparent border it could explain that small offset, if not ... I guess there is a bug there. Is that the problem you are referring to?
