I don't know if this is a bug or by design, but clicking in the white space after an object (like after the name when a column is too wide) doesn't behave like clicking on the object. For example, if I click in the middle of the column after the name it will select the object, but I can't drag the object. More annoying is if I turn on double clicking in white space to go to the parent, it will behave the same way with the in line whitespace. This leads to situations where I'll try to open a file and end up going back a folder instead. Is there a fix for this?

It is by design

If clicking starting to drag outside of the name  you get the selection rectangle area that you can drag out.
However you can disable the selection rectangle. And a click and drag on the white space will be a drag of the item.
