This is still a bug. No, it is NOT a feature if anybody from Gnome happens to 
be reading.
Ubuntu 16.04, Gnome3

Usually if I am moving files to a new folder, i hesitate to confirm to
myself if the move is really what i want to do, then in the blink of an
eye i have navigated inside the folder without even wanting to. Talk
about a "feature" that I don't desire in an operating system. Lose the
"feature" folks.

  Drag and Drop File Auto Opens Folders

Status in nautilus package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  When dragging and dropping a file, if the mouse hovers over a folder
  for a split second, the folder opens.

  This behaviour is quite jarring.  Whether or not you intended to drop
  into that folder, you may not have intended to open that folder.

  The hover time can't be set.  And the behaviour can't be disabled.

  It's a very significant usability issue for Ubuntu 13.10.
