Figured it out.  When I selected multiple files by
holding down the <ctrl> key and clicking on them,
I left the <ctrl> key down (yes, in M$ Windows
Explorer style) when I dragged the files.

When I finally let go of the <ctrl> key before I
dragged, all went well.  :-)


p.s. I had to work on a Apple two weeks ago.
About went out of my mind.  Kept getting
it mixed up with both Windows and XFce.
But, I ramble ...  (Apple is not so high quality
as Apple would like you to believe, but just
my opinion.  At least the Free BSD part
actually works correctly.)
