Ubuntu 16.04, Gnome3

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

Drag and Drop File Auto Opens Folders
Status in nautilus package in Ubuntu:
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.
