drag and dropd does not place image in the layers panel where I want it (PSE18)

When I drag and drop and image from the photo bin into my layout in the workspace, I position my cursor in the layers panel on the layer below where I want the new image to be placed. However, PSE 2018 puts it somewhere totally different and I then have to drag it to where I want it - see screenshot for an example. This is very frustrating if I have lots of layers.  In PSE14 this never happened but happens all the time in PSE18. What is wrong? I'm using PSE18 on a Macbook Pro.

With the move tool active and your layer selected, look at the tool palette on the bottom: untick the box 'auto select layer'.

If it is ticked, the dragged layer goes just above the visible layer at the spot of the display where you release the drop.
