Mail 2.0: Can’t drag-and-drop to ‘Subject’ line until it’s been selected

More weirdness in Mac OS X’s Mail 2.0.

Open an existing message in a separate window. Then compose a new message in another window. Don’t do anything after you’ve created the new message. Just leave it the way it is, with the cursor in the “To:” field by default.

Now go to the other message window and select some text there (anywhere). Take the text and try to drag it and drop it in the “Subject:” line of the new message window.

It won’t work. You can drag text and drop it on the “To:” and “Cc:” fields, but you cannot drop it on the “Subject:” line. Or rather, it will only work if you first click on the “Subject:” field or tab into it to bring the focus on it.

Pretty sloppy on Apple’s part.
