Remote drag and drop does not set icon position

When dragging a file from the remote pane to the desktop, the position of the icon of the file being copied should be set according to the location of the mouse cursor at the point that the mouse button was released.
Instead, the icon is simply placed into the next available position automatically by Explorer.
Note that this does not happen when dragging a file from the local pane to the desktop: this does place the icon exactly where it was dropped. Only the remote pane is affected.
As an example, imagine you have two displays, with display 1 as the primary, and FileZilla on this display. Should you drag one local file and one remote file to display 2, the local file will be deposited exactly where you dropped it, but the remote file will be placed automatically by Explorer and will be behind the FileZilla window, somewhere amongst your other icons.
This did affect XP (some old version of FileZilla), and it's still present in the latest FileZilla 64-bit in Windows 10 (3.21.0).
