Comment (by azaozz):

 Replying to [comment:2 pbiron]:
 > I may be misunderstanding this, but even when there is only metabox
 visible, I may still want to drag it from the 1st column and drop it in
 the 2nd.

 Right, this is going to be "fixed" with this ticket. All drop areas should
 be visible when Screen Options are open, and not visible otherwise. Also
 thinking dragging/arranging of metaboxes should not be possible when not
 setting the screen options.

 On the code side that means Sortables will be enabled only when the
 `screen-meta-active` class is present on the `button#show-settings-link`.
