I meant the modeline text, for example, the background of the buffer
name or the major mode.  Does it get highlighted immediately when the
mouse is there?

Here I don't get any visual feedback in terms of a vertical "<-|->" but
I can drag immediately.

But you don't talk about dragging there, I suppose.

So the delay happens before these triangles show up.  But have you tried
to drag before they show up?  Because, as I said before, they never show
up here anyway.
