I complained about a similar problem when it happened going from 2.1.6
to 2.1.7. By making a tk-composite-widget out of your object and those
"attached" to it, you should be about to do this, but no one ever
responded to my mail. stk::motion=drag should be moving the canvas
group not the selected item. I think that it sounds like a bad choice
on your part to be using stk::lastx and stk::lasty as those varaibles
weren't meant to be used, but you should be able to selected and drag
a canvas group. I will be posting a message to this list later today
announcing some software which handles this problem with a modification
to Canvas.stk.
