'''jQuery UI's sortable connectWith option has some core instabilities.


When: your two sortable element 'bins' or 'buckets' have a width that makes the sortable elements inside push into two or more lines.

What breaks: In this case, the movement of elements within a bin is unstable:

2. the elements constantly jump around, and

3. it is impossible to move an element into the first position


Removing connectWith returns stability to the sortable lists:

Potential Solution: This SO Q+A has found a potential solution to improve stability:

I am unsure that this user has submitted a ticket, so I wrote new fiddles and am submitting one here.

This remains as a core bug, I would hope this could be reopened and resolved.

Why would we re-open this ticket? We're aware of the bug, having duplicate tickets open won't get the bug fixed any faster.
