Thanks Alex.  Where would I add event.stop?  I have onclick="blah();
return false;" in the link element so that href is not followed.
However, the problem only exists when I drag from a link, and the
problem also only exists when I have content iframed in.

I found a post that talks about how iframes can screw up events in IE7
so that is where I am now.
