Reordering Photos fails in Lightroom 5.3 after extensive use

I use the grid view to reorder photos then rename them so I have the correct sequence number for each image as part of the name. After I have been doing this for an hour or so (on various folders of images) Lightroom gives me an error message saying: "Reorder photos by dragging from within the grid view, not by dragging from another source". The images are not from multiple folders and I am dragging within the grid view same as I was doing moments before it simply stopped working. Subsequent attempts to drag are met simply with silence. No more error messages.

I can simply fix this problem by closing Lightroom and reopening it. Once I do that I can reorder the images again. After another hour or so of doing this it fails again.
