V5.99 Very (unsuccessful) drag behavior [w/SOLUTION]

See version below
Simple board created in earlier version of 5.99 This version and a previous one would not allow me to drag on this particular trace. Once I start to drag, most of the trace disappears. Releasing the “d” and clicking anywhere outside of the board confines and the trace reappears.

I deleted Most of the trace with no change in drag behavoir.
I deleted ALL of the trace and can now successfully drag the subject corner.

I can successfully drag other traces.

Select trace to drag:

Pressing “d” and start to drag:

SOLUTION (or at least an explanation)

I found the trace in blue was violating a clearance rule somewhere. When I reduced the width the drag worked perfectly.

See https://gitlab.com/kicad/code/kicad/-/issues/6904, is this that one?

It doesn’t manifest itself the same way. In the case I had I found a definite rules violation at the SMD pads of the connector. I had the clad entering the SMD pads too wide. I’ll assume when I went to drag a segment the software balked at moving a segment of a trace where another segment violated the rules.
