Pane Project Files very sensitive to mouse movement, thinks I want to move files all the time

Hi,
very often, when I double-click a file in the Project Files pane, PHPStorm tries to move the files. I probably slightly move the mouse during the double-click.
The thing is - no other program does this to me. This makes me think that PHPStorm might be too sensitive when detecting a move-the-file intention from the user.

Does someone else experience this problem?

I know I can turn on moving objects only with Ctrl, but I move tabs in the editor frequently and this slows me down.
The setting (move with Ctrl) applies both to moving files and to moving tabs which is inconvenient.

How else can I solve it?

Same problem here (both on my windows machine, mac, wireless-mouse / fixed-mouse)..

Enable "Drag-n-Drop with ALT pressed only" at File | Settings | Appearance & Behavior | Appearance - this should help.

Same here. This seems to happen when mouse is set to fast speed. 

ALT is a viable workaround but I would prefer a fix for the root cause. The same mouse doesn't behave like this among 4 other IDE vendors.

As far as I could concern, this option is a product of similar reports:

Unfortunately, this is all I found (apart from some duplicates) about this behaviour on YouTrack, so please feel free to submit your own request:
