Happens to me too, LR 5.7, OS X 10.9.5 and 10.10.1.

You can avoid this by dropping the dragged image between the two images to its left (the border between them will be bolded black). The bug only happens when you drop the image on top of the image to its left.

Thank you John,
I know the workaround, nevertheless the bug
makes lightroom unusable to do editing and sequencing.

This is Adobe's official site for reporting problems, so the problem has already been reported (with more detail than is usually provided).

While Adobe actively monitors this site and acknowledges some problems (and fixes fewer), most reported problems remain unacknowledged.

I was expecting something more complete, like Apple's radar.

Years ago, they had something like that, but replaced it with this forum. Overall, I prefer this, since it makes potential problems (and eventual solutions) visible to the entire community.

Same problems on the last version.

Someone from Adobe can comment on?

Thank you Jeffrey.

I hope is fixed but this bug is three year old and I think this is one of the worst experience I had with a software house (beside the old Microsoft I think).

I will try LR6 but I will seriously look for an alternative.
