Identify this behavior

When I highlight text within the IntelliJ editor and attempt to drag and drop it, sometimes I get a behavior that I'm trying to understand.  A small window appears with the name of the file I'm editing on a different tab within the editor.  What is this functionality trying to do?  And, how do I prevent it (assuming its not something I want to start using)?

For some reason IDE thinks you are dragging the whole editor tab. Dragging it off the main IDE frame area creates separate frame. I have not found a setting to turn this off. However, I could reproduce the tab drag only when it starts from _tab_, not from inner selected content.
