I realized there's a crufty workaround, which is to use the shift/
control(*) modifiers when you click to start a drag. So, if I want to
drag five contiguous entries in the table, I click (and release) on
the first, and then shift-click-drag the fifth. Doing non-contiguous
selections requires the use of alt/control/cmd click-drag when you
select the last item.
(*) It's command-click on the Mac; I think it's control-click on
Windows/Linux, but I haven't double-checked.
