You can fix the below problems at these lines by simply giving the function something to refer to for 'this'. The 4.0.1 patch removed 'this' as a keyword that refers to the current relevant object from what I understand.

Line 121 or so:

Change
frame:SetScript("OnDragStart", function()
To
frame:SetScript("OnDragStart", function(this)

Line 125 or so:

Change
frame:SetScript("OnDragStop", function()
To
frame:SetScript("OnDragStop", function(this)



*edit: Messed up the line numbers!

So you can't move the tip but if you right click the anchor it does hide it again.

New version 2.0-Release out today. No change to functionality but half the size by eliminating a bunch of library code I didn't need.

I use a barmod replacement called Dominos that lets you move the loot/roll frame.

Another option is a complete loot/roll replacement addon like teksLoot (which I also use and recommend).
