I've found a way to reproduce your symptom: by dropping a file that 
Amarok can't do anything with. (In my case: a .bmp cover art image)

    * Clear the playlist
    * Add some tracks

    * Doubleclick some track to start playing it.
    * Press "cursor down" key: this makes "active track" and "selected
      index" different tracks.

    * Drop a .bmp file somewhere in the playlist.

    * The "selected index" magically becomes the new drag&drop item.

Does that match your case?
