Dragging (= click and hold) should move the window, based in other
WM/desktop I had to interact recently. It's a new "feature", probably
needed because there is an obsession with getting rid of window
decorations... so some empty areas become a move handle... without any
visual clue, as not all spaces let you move windows.

As for the Sawfish "randomly stuck in resize with button released"
behaviour, I sent a possible solution to be tested along with what I
found while investigating (the thing hit multiple WMs and apps).

(The mail archive got confused with git patch and the attached file,
and split the extra into another email)

PS: And before sending this, I see others also have the issue and
Chris mentions my patch. Please test it, above mails give some
instructions, simplest one being copying a file.
PS2: Chris, the git patch has a missing "o" (gsromero@) just in case
you want to use it.
