I have used it with no problems. I believe the -1 is there so you can detect if the mouse is no longer dragging, kind of like active / inactive events. Just add a filter on the output like [moses 0]. I'm not sure why you see errors.

At the very least, you should be able to copy and modify the internals to suit your needs. Chris did most of the work already...
