Dragging text as an element using the -khtml-user-drag selector does not work. The text selector cursor appears as if the text was selectable and the element cannot be dragged. This used to work in previous WebKit builds. Try code example below:
<div style="-khtml-user-select:none;-khtml-user-drag:element;">drag text</div>
Probably regressed in <http://trac.webkit.org/projects/webkit/changeset/25057>.

Is there a real site depending on this? How did you discover this problem? It's important that we understand the impact of this so we can gauge the importance of a quick fix.
After reviewing the 25057 changeset that email@example.com posted, it appears that the desired functionality can now be obtained using "-khtml-user-select: ignore". So, a workaround is available, but I imagine this change could break lots of third party WebKit-based apps and Dashboard widgets.

Please add a note here if anyone reading this discovers a specific WebKit-based application or Dashboard widget that is affected.

That change has been rolled out and eventually replaced by <http://trac.webkit.org/projects/webkit/changeset/25641>.

After r25641, this workaround is no longer possible.
This bug is causing the drag and drop feature in my web application to not work. Have any other workarounds been found?
My web application is: http://www.bungeelabs.com/
I am facing this problem in my we application.
Any news on this bug? Will it be fixed? Any workarounds?
A temporary workaround:
<span style="-webkit-user-drag: element;" ondragstart="SpanDragHandler()">
<span style="z-index: -1; position: relative; -webkit-user-select: none;">drag me</span>
The z-index makes it so that the outer span is hit-tested first.
I've got a fix for this, and will post it after I've come up with a regression test.
