In my patch, I needed to have an XSync after XChangeProperty in setatom, not just before it. It seemed to fix a race condition. I am not sure I actually fixed it completely, because I don't know how that stuff works yet, but it helped in my case. 

I haven't been able to reproduce the bug, so maybe that will help?

not exactly. when you grabbed and moved the text release the mouse and
grab it again and move it and release and grab...^^
usually when i read texts online i always mark the text. as surf doesnt
mark that well it eventually moves it like you did in the gif and as i
do it quickly it crashes.
so try it again but this time grab, move, release, grab, ... :)
