To the best of my knowledge this is expected behavior. The dock has been doing that (probably) since the 10.0 public beta. Unfortunately I have seen nothing online, either in App form or a shell or applescript, that would prevent this from happening. Perhaps someone else has run across something that would do this.

You can use spotlight (⌘-Space) to do most anything. ⌘⇧A opens Apps folder, ⌘⇧H opens Home folder. To fix your problem: Try opening the Terminal app (launch via Spotlight).

I'm assuming you're taking about either the grid or fan-out folder on the doc (e.g. documents)? I don't believe you can use the keyboard to select files on the fan-out display (haven't tried it) and thus you'd be limited to the mouse drag method you mention. For the grid display, you can select files with the arrow keys. However, I would imagine that if it ...
