Lightroom: Grid mode changes to User Order too easily

This is a feature, but for me it's an annoying bug. Can be easily improved:

When in Grid view with photos sorted by, let's say, Capture time. If the user not only clicks on a photo, but also drags it by a mere 1 pixel, the sorting changes to User Order. (Then any newly added or Photoshop-edited photos are added to the end of list and not sorted by capture time).

1-pixel drag does nothing and would be harmless, but this is annoying. Of course, when using mouse it is fairly simple to only click without movement, but when using tablet, it is hard to only olick on one spot and I occasionally end up with also dragging by 1-2 pixels, which triggers this bug.

Suggested solution: Change mode to User Order ONLY when user actually CHANGES order of phots, i.e. drags a photo so far that it changes its position in the list. This requires dragging by tens or hundreds of pixels, which is usually not done accidentally.
