the user aborted the drag by pressing escape.

In GIMP we drag around dialogs and create new ones if they were not

unsuccessful drop is detected, is emitted *after* Gtk+ did the
animation which indicates that the drop failed.

Would it be possible to make this either configurable or depending
on the return value of the "drag_end" handler or whatever :)
