So I've got my map displayed and some Features added to a Layer. All good, etc.

When I try and pan around my map, I can only pan when I left-click the mouse .. hold .. and drag the mouse ... when the mouse cursor is NOT over a feature/shape on the vector layer.

Otherwise, the panning works great.

What's the trick to say .. can pan the map at any time / anywhere the mouse cursor is?
