Class: Bug
Severity: Serious
Number: 19552
Release: 19.05
Confidential: No
Status: Analyzed
Responsible:
Environment: GTK 2
Synopsis: GTK drag and drop is unfinished as {EV_WIDGET_IMP}.initialize_file_drop is never called

Description
GTK drag and drop is unfinished as  {EV_WIDGET_IMP}.initialize_file_drop is never called

This is definitely true in version 16.05 and is likely true in version 19.05 as  in the source for version 19.05 the only text reference of  initialize_file_drop I can find in all the Vision2 source tree is the definition itself. This would explain why it is very difficult to trigger the GDK_FILE_DROP event. It does happen but only for 1 in every 7 attempts.
To Reproduce
A drag and drop test courtesy of German Arias is attached

In case it proves useful I am attaching a source file from gnome-terminal as reference example of drag and drop that works for any URI
