Synopsis: popup menu when dropping in an EV_TEXT

When dropping a pebble (using pick-and-drop) on an EV_TEXT
or EV_TEXT_FIELD, I often get a popup menu for text
edition facilities (e.g. copy, paste, undo, ...). This
is very annoying. Somehow it does not seem to happen 
when dropping on an EV_RICH_TEXT. Is there a way to
avoid this behavior? I tried to call `set_pick_and_drop_mode'
(and all the other `set_*_mode' in EV_TEXT) with no

Dear Eric,

The issue with the pop up menu appearing while dropping in an EV_TEXT or
EV_TEXT_FIELD is a bug and we believed that we had disabled this menu from appearing when completing a pick and drop to a textable widget.

We just tested dropping on both an EV_TEXT an EV_TEXT_FIELD and the 
menu was not shown. Could you isolate this into a small test for us?

Also, can you check that `allow_pick_and_drop' from 
EV_TEXT_COMPONENT_IMP actually calls `disable_default_processing' in the
case where it fails.
