* Drag and drop events no longer appear to work properly in Emacs 27.1 on
Mac OS X.

* When I run Emacs from the command line I see the message: `Invalid data
type in dragging pasteboard` when trying to drag text or URLs from a webbrowser
(firefox or safari) into an Emacs buffer.

* I've tested this with two different builds of 27.1 -- from
https://emacsformacosx.com and the "emacs plus" formula under homebrew
(https://github.com/d12frosted/homebrew-emacs-plus) on both OS X 10.14.6
(Mavericks) and 10.15.6 (Catalina)

* Reverting to Emacs 26.3 resolves this issue

In GNU Emacs 27.1 (build 1, x86_64-apple-darwin19.5.0, NS appkit-1894.50

of 2020-08-27 built on d12frosted.local

Thanks! I've pushed it to emacs-27 and it will be merged into master
in due course.

I'll close this bug report now and if anyone wants to modernise the
drag and drop code they can create a new one with the patch or
