Lightroom: Cancelling a folder drag-and-drop prevents folder from being moved

In the Library Folders panel, if you drag a folder "f" onto another folder and then cancel the Moving Files On Disk dialog, any further attempts to drag folder "f" onto any other folder will silently fail.  Only after restarting LR will the drag-and-drop succeed.

Tested on LR CC 2015.5 / OS X 10.11.4 and Windows 10.

I just tested this on my MBP running Mavericks—my Lightroom catalog is on an external drive so I haven't tested this on Yosemite, but I think I don't have to. It's a problem on Macs. I can drag another folder and prompt the dialog, but not the one I've canceled.
