Interactive drag works intermittently in 4.0.7

In OpenGL mode, I can often grab a track and drag it out of the way. This is a very useful feature. However, there are also many times when I try doing this, and nothing happens. The track doesn’t budge at all.

I’m on Mac OS X 10.9.5, using KiCad 4.0.7. I don’t recall it being this difficult before. Is this something that changed between 4.0.6 and 4.0.7? Is there anything I can do to move the tracks that don’t want to move? Currently, the only alternative I know of is to delete the track and redraw it, but that’s much less convenient.

If I recall correctly, you will not be able to move a track that has a DRC violation at any point along its length.

Thanks! I’m not sure if that was the case or not, but I’ll definitely keep an eye out for that next time I run into this problem.
