      I have a followup to this -- something I've been doing lately that
      tames the wheel mouse's need for speed. Instead of using the hand or
      arm to move the selection, I use the wheel.

      Select copy to move. Start to drag it down or up -- continue to hold
      hold the left button while spinning the wheel. The wheel gives me
      tighter control when nearing the window's boundary. The wheel
      travels at a "controlable" speed.

      When you release the left button, it drops without jumping or moving
      any deeper into the file. It didn't take that long to retrain to use
      the wheel instead of the arm/hand ... to move things. It's second
      nature now. Maybe you can use this trick.
