I'm sort of surprised by that because isn't that how menus, or even
other transient pop-ups behave. i.e. they stay on screen until a click
outside them, they then go away, but the click is not lost.

Can you do the revert back to the hide-after-the-drag as it was
originally? I think Alex is not around tomorrow.

Yep, nice.

For now it's fine. How many pixels is it actually?  For other sliders I
know we will have a requirement for them to be 256 pixels wide, but this
one is OK for now.

OK. Given the comments by users that we have a gone a step backwards
(another click being necessary) it would be good to get the Mac-like
behaviour in there as well.
