there is no change by changing the order, but I didn't expect one.  since ondrag is binding a callback, which is only called when the event happens, I figure that the pen has to be down when the callback happens, not when the binding occurs.  since the pen is down (and never lifted), when I start dragging the mouse around after that it should work...but doesn't seem to.
