Controls should use registerPriority when registering events on activate
-- registerPriority says 'me first!'. So, even though dragPan would get
the event, if you registerPriority, you'll get it first, and then stop
it so that dragPan doesn't get it.

If that doesn't work somewhere, then it would be good to know, but I
think it should.
