There has been one important change for dragging in NSTableView, which
may affect that code in some way. Now there are different drag mask
settings for local and non-local dragging. The later by default is set
to NSDragOperationNone. This behaviour matches, as far as I know, what
Apple is doing. But why would the drag view see this as a non-local drag

What you should do is debug into GSDragView (and it's subclass XX) to
see, how the value for draggingSourceOperationMask is build up from
dragMask (coming from the drag source) and operationMask (coming from
the modifier keys). One of these two (most likely dragmask) must be wrong.

Not using GNUmail myself, this is as much as I can advice you on the
