#36321: Cannot use visual editor after dragging a WP_Editor container

 When a WP Editor is placed inside a draggable element and that element is
 dragged (using JavaScript), the visual editor of that editor is not usable
 any longer: Its content disappears and it's no longer possible to even
 click into the editor frame.

 The first time I saw this happening was inside a custom element that I
 made draggable using the jQuery UI Draggable plugin. After that I also
 tested the editor inside a regular WordPress meta box, and when I dragged
 that metabox, the same issue occurred, so it the bug was not related to my
 own JS implementation.

 While investigating, I discovered that this seems to be a general problem
 of TinyMCE - I couldn't find a proper solution yet though.
