drag-dropping urls or texts open them in a "random" tab?

It is the one simplest function that makes me miss Chrome. It's so stupid and it makes No sense at all to have that function just to open it in a totally random tab.
Steps to recreate - in case you have never experienced it, yet. -
- Select a text or url using your mouse.
- Drag that text on the top of address bar where the tabs are.
- You can drop it on a specific tab or an empty slot, it makes no difference to Opera and it opens your url or searches the text you're dragging in a totally random tab.

As per suggestion from the forum system itself, I'm opening a new topic for that. This bug has been around for at least few months. When you drag and drop a URL or highlighted text onto tabs, the text/URL is opened in a random tab.
Expected behavior: when I drop URL/text on a specific tab, I want Opera to open that URL or search in that specific tab. Instead most of the time this is done in another, existing tab, overriding what was already there. If not noticed, a user might easily close the tab afterwards and loose what they had opened before.
On the other hand when I drop on the empty space after the last tab, I want a new tab to be created. Instead, again, sometimes a random tab is overridden or sometimes a tab is in fact created but in a random place or before the first tab in that context.
This is very very annoying and the complete randomness of this makes its usage even worse. If it was at least predictable, one could get used to this glitch, but it's not.

As i have observed the tab selected is not random. This happens only when one or more tabs are pinned. And the tab selected is the same number of pinned tabs away from the right most tab.
Any solution for this.?
