When moving via drag/drop, a piece dropped outside the window (invalid move) doesn't cause the original piece to be redrawn, thus appearing like it disappeared.  You can select the piece by choosing the now empty square, but the square shouldn't be empty.

Easier to reproduce by releasing in the non-client area where the clocks and menu are.

I noticed this on my ARM device using 4.8 regularly, and reproduced it in a cygwin git build from May 5, 2016.
