Issue 323: Dragging windows (with slow clients)

Reported by Nikolaus Schaller, Jan 26, 2012

If the client is fast and no redraw is involved, dragging windows is 
fine.

If the client does heavy redrawing (e.g. Navigator), dragging not 
only becomes interrupted but also strange.

The last position assigned to the window is the mouse position when 
the mouse-up event is processed! And not when the event was 
generated.

This makes it quite impossible to fine position a window to the 
release point of the mouse.

The code may be based on absolute mouse positions instead of 
relative as reported by the events. This may have been changed some 
time ago, because relative event positions are also not very 
reliable since they depend on ongoing window movements.

So we need to correctly track both: mouse moved and window moved 
responses from the server and make sure they don't swap order.
