Stuck in Pan Mode after long pressing the map

Is it possible to handle a long press on the map?  I am trying to develop an interface where clicking on a feature on the map will open the attribute editor and long pressing on a feature will enable edit mode so the user can move the feature.

I have code that should do this:

var timer;
    on(this.map, "mouse-down", lang.hitch(this, function(e) {
        timer = setTimeout(lang.hitch(this, function() {
            this.selectFeatures(e.screenPoint).then(lang.hitch(this.editor, this.editor.moveFeature));
        }), 5*1000);
    }));

    on(this.map, "mouse-up", function(e) {
        clearTimeout(timer);
    });


When I long press the map the map somehow goes into pan mode and without clicking the mouse, wherever I move the cursor the map pans with it.  In other words, wherever I long pressed on the map will remain under the cursor wherever I move the cursor on the map.

From what I can tell, my code is also working, but with this additional side effect.  The only way I have found to get out of pan mode is to refresh the page.

I have seen other posts related to similar behavior of pan mode, but they are all limited to IE.  I am seeing this in Chrome.
