A bug in desktop?

    I have noticed that sometimes when I'm on the desktop and dragging items to folders the screen jumps back to the desktop after I've selected files. This happens mostly when I select multipl files. As soon as I'm ready to drop it into the folder, it jumps back to the desktop again. So the only way it works is if I select one item at a time to drag. Has anyone seen this at all?

    My system:
    PBG4 1 gz, 15"
    1 gig Ram
    most current vers. of osx

    it happens to me sometimes too, but I'm not sure it's a bug, mostly if I am floundering finding a place to put something, eventually it decides that the copy wasn't meant to be.

    if you know exactly where to put it and select each folder within a second or two, it works fine.

    So I think it is a kind of time limit before it realizes that whatever you were doing was an accident
