Dragging by image in Chrome

When you click an <img> in order to start a drag in Google Chrome, the browser starts to select text rather than drag the item. In Firefox it seems ok.

<div id="draggable"><img src="icon-search-big.png" /></div>

<script type="text/javascript">

$('#draggable').draggable({distance: 10});


That should show the bug. After my attempts to replicate it, it only seemed

to show when the draggable had the "distance" property set.
