I have to admit that things are even worse than you think. GNUstep D&D was never compatible with XDND and never actually worked. Our idea to have the gpbs deamon handling the D&D via a pasteboard does not fit the XDND concept of data exchange.
What needs to be done is to move the D&D code from the xpbs.m file to XGServerEvent and of course to update to a more current XDND version.

Currently there are no plans to implement this. Volunteers are welcome.

Although I love GNUStep, the biggest problem that I have with it is the lack of interpolation with other X apps which seems to stem from GNUStep's use of XDND version 2. Are there any plans to upgrade to XDND >= 3 so that it will work with apps from other environments?
