Cannot verify this case in 2.1.3 with the widgets plugin, but the UX is indeed a bit weird. When the bottom bar becomes empty, you have to drag widgets to its left side only for them to change from the "bar" to the "box". Then dropping them will indeed remove them from the sidebars.

Perhaps this is also the case in 2.2. Try moving the widgets to the left side of the bottom drop zone.

Here is a small patch. It just expand the 'palette' box in the same time as the 'palettediv' in order to let an empty area for the dropping the widgets. With this patch the hidden box 'lastmodule' becomes useless. Removing it might be a good idea but need a bigger job. This should be discussed.

Previously without this empty area, you had to move the mouse at the very left of the drop zone.

One drawback is the apparition of flickering like in the sidebar when dragging a widget over the list.
