Reordering applications in the favorites area of the Application Dashboard causes the application being dragged to launch, upon mouse button release. This happens for every application in the Favorites area. This action is contrary to normal UI behavior a user expects.
This is always reproducible.

So nice to see some attention paid to the Application Dashboard. :)

I really like it, especially with a touchscreen (once that other patch comes my way).
Andrew, would you be able to test again with Plasma 5.12.2 or the upcoming 5.12.3? Eike's told me that this may/should have been fixed in one of those.
I can confirm on Arch Linux, plasma 5.12.2.
However the problem is intermittent here.

Good point, I didn't think about that. When he pushed the fix for touchscreen tapping, that probably changed this behavior. I'll give 5.12.3 a test in a bit.
It looks like this is still an issue. I tested on Neon Dev Unstable just now (4:5.12.2+p16.04+git20180228.1209-0), it still opens apps upon mouse release.
One thing I did notice, was that if you release the mouse button while an icon is highlighted blue, it will launch. If you reorder favorites, but drag the mouse out of bounds, so the icon is no longer highlighted blue, it does not launch. You can even drag your mouse back onto the icon, after the blue highlight goes away, and it will not re-highlight.

I just tested this again on the following and it is intermittent (every second or so move).
KDE Plasma Version: 5.13.4
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.49.0
Qt Version: 5.11.1
Kernel Version 4.18.5

Sometimes application is launched after dragging also on Wayland
After draging, sometimes the application isn't launch, but each time after draging an application, the dashboard closes. So it's necessary to re-open the dashoard to continue to reordering the favorites, it's not at all practical in terms of behaviour.
