Dragging from the story editor to another part now seems to use the "no drag/drop supported" cursor. However, drag and drop from the SE to the canvas *loses* that text ; it's removed from the SE but not pasted to the canvas.

Drag+drop from canvas to SE does nothing, though the "drop OK" cursor shows.

Drag+drop from external apps to the SE appears to show the "no drop" cursor, at least for Nautilus. Drag+drop from SE to an external app uses the "no drop" cursor too.

Correction - seems drag to external apps that expect text blobs is fine.

Data loss when dragging from SE to main window is probably because ScribusView's drop handler lies about having handled the drop.

I'm going to have to bump this - no time for it, and while it's a serious bug it's not on that's likely to be triggered much if at all. Fixing might require some serious work on the drag'n'drop code.
