Michael may be on to something. It didn't work while you were
recording a screencast, but it did as soon as you stopped the
screencast. Maybe your screencast program intercepts some mouse
events.
Of course I imagine you don't use the screencast software every day.
So the question is: why doesn't it work these times? Well maybe it
also installed a service always run in background? In any case, could
you try this again:
1/ run the screencast program, check that dnd does not work.
2/ quit the screencast program, check that dnd works.

If you can reproduce this every time, then there is probably a very
good lead to follow there.
