That was a quick and reasonable way of supporting drag-n-drop between

It works well in client mode. It is needed, because by default, X (and
other window system) do a pointer grab when you press a button, so that the
release event is received by the same window regardless of where the
pointer is. Here, we change that behaviour, so that you can press and
release in two differents displays. This is only supported in client mouse

Hope that helps clear it
