Thanks to Christian and Themis for debugging assistance on this; it
only occurs if you drop a file from the Finder on a particular row of
the main publication table (which has enough information to activate
autofile). This appears to be a limitation of the way the Finder
I've checked in a workaround that will be in the next nightly build.
If you drop on an editor window or drag from Preview's window title
bar (for instance), the problem won't occur.
