There is an option in JqueryUI sortable called tolerance with default "intersect"

The idea is, if you drag an element over 50% of another element, regardless of where your cursor is, sorting starts happening.

Problem: it doesnt. The cursor needs to cross the other elements border for sorting to start.

Anyone have ideas how to fix this in a clean way?

Or which code in JqueryUI would i need to fiddle with to fix it directly there?

Tried looking where this is handled but no luck.
