Mash-up issue with drag and drop and document.writeln

Dragging something with a 'document.writeln' in it causes the page to break. Here is an example:

To replicate the issue, try to drag 'Item 1'.

I encountered this problem when using jQuery drag an drop in a learning management system that already contained some javascript. We wanted to drag sections of the page around to change the layout. One of the sections of the page had an existing script that contained a call to 'document.writeln'.

THis is not a issue of draggables - it's related to the cloning and appending of the element, which reexecutes the script code in global scope.
