Trackpad dragging

On my MacBook Po I really like the (new) giant trackpad it always worked perfect until a while ago.

Sometimes when I want to drag some files around it doesn't register I'm holding the trackpad down and it won't drag the file.
Or it drags the file for a few pixels and release it by itself into the wrong folder. I have the same problem sometimes when I want to select some text, it only selects a piece of the text.

Even if I work in Photoshop it doesn't always work great.

Am I the only one who is having this very annoying problem?

I just started having the same exact problem as the OP from 2009 (I have a 2009 MBP) and just wanted to share that reseting the PRAM fixed my problem also. Thanks for the post.
