Ok, not a bug but a feature. :)

I've finally succeeded in reproducing the problem with meter drag.
I don't have a crash, but a complete freeze of the mouse actions.
The mouse cursor is blocked as a handle, and the only way to get out of this is 
to exit with the keyboard (Ctrl-Q, Alt-F4, or so)

To reproduce it, I just have to double-click on the meter number.
Not on the meter itself, just at its right.
