Sortable: incorrect value for ui.sender in sortover events

I've found out that ui.sender is set to, in my opinion, an incorrect value when:

a. Sorting a list.

b. Dragging a connected draggable over the list.

Check this fiddle and do the following:

1. Start dragging an item in the list on the left.

2. Drag over an item from the list on the right to the one on the left.

In both cases ui.sender is set to the list on the left. I believe it should be null in both cases since the item is not coming from a (different) sortable.

Here is a commit that fixes this issue.

I'd like your opinion on whether this is an actual bug and if it should be fixed to behave like this.

This is tricky. I could see it being convenient to have

set in an
event, even if the sender is the same list.

But I agree that it probably should be set to

in each of these scenarios; technically there is no "sender". I'm not sure this is something we can change before the interactions rewrite though.
