Looks like it ;-)

Wrong. Here's an example:

m := BorderedMorph new.
m on: #startDrag send: #grabMorph: to: m.
m on: #click send: #value to:[self inform:'you clicked'].
m openInWorld

When you drag the morph you drag it. When you click you click.

The submorph unless
* the submorph is not interested (mouse down outside, mouse not handled,
locked etc)
* the #mouseDownPriority (see implementors of that method) of the outer
morph is larger than that of the submorph (note: this facility should be
used _very_ sparingly)
