I am glad that you could track down the issue :)

I don't know of any workarounds unfortunatelly, but you should check


whether a "drag and drop" related issue already exists (for Qt 5.4), and if not, add one (best with some minimal compileable code).

(If an issue already exists you can also "vote" for it, or even add additional information about how to reproduce etc. ;))

Hopefully it gets fixed in 5.4.1 already (since it seems to be a regression in 5.4).
