If, when placing a scalebar, legend, or label on the map composer, one presses the mouse button, moves the mouse, then releases the mouse button, the item doesn't always end up where you clicked or released. Sometimes it is placed a considerable distance away, and often far enough away to be off the map.

This is occuring because the placement action is taken as a mouse button down only. Moving the mouse after the mouse button down is treated as a 'move of selected item', which for some reason can give large move distances for 1 or 2 actual pixel moves, and may be related to the inverse coordinate transformation that takes place.
