Moving a chip up and to the left can cause it to disappear as though it was moved off the panel.

There may be other chip movements that cause this same problem but here is the scenario I used that reproduces it, for me, about one third of the time. (The more I practiced, the easier it was to move just the right amount.)

Place a single SKATE chip in a socket that is not close to the edge of the panel and that has empty sockets around it. Move the chip precisely up and to the left a half socket length in both directions, as though you are trying to drop it exactly centered in the green space between the four sockets around the upper left corner of the original socket. After few attempts you should hit the bug and the chip will be gone.

I think any chip can be moved, because I remember other chip types disappearing, but for my tests I used a SKATE chip. And I'm fairly sure the move doesn't have to be to a neighboring socket or that those sockets have to be empty. (When I try to picture what's going on in the ChipWits editor code to cause this, it's as though when you move exactly to a mid-way point in the socket grid then internal calculations hit a divide-by-zero and think the chip has been moved miles away.)

Yes, touching a chip is too twitchy. Will fix. Thanks!
