This test in its current position is not supposed to (or will not run) in non-windows platform as we have @requires tag... Probably SQE is running some old test.
Also, the regression test was added specially for Microsoft Outlook drag issue so I don't think we should use some other requirement just to make it pass for other platform or even on windows.
