When editing Android layouts, I often use the Document Outline window to 
understand the view hierarchy and to get to the properties of container 
elements. I've yet to determine what the exact trigger is, but by merely 
clicking nodes in the tree view, it is possible to duplicate that node 
and it's children inside itself. It seems that some clicks in this 
window are being counted as a drag and drop (albeit of zero length), 
rather than just clicks. It's unexpected that a drag and drop operation 
would perform a copy of the view hierarchy, rather than simply moving 
it, as would happen in most other places. I've yet to find any way to 
disable this undesirable behaviour.
