Toolbar icons always did this
Authored by: MJCube on Sep 16, '09 11:51:51AM
This technique is not new to Snow Leopard. Icons in the Finder toolbar never ‘rooted' the way sidebar icons do. I just rechecked this in Leopard 10.5.8 and Tiger 10.4.11. The only change is that now Snow Leopard provides a way to hide the sidebar separately from the toolbar.

The "buggy" behavior mentioned in the hint is correct, but this happens only when the folder exists in both places, and you click the sidebar first and then the toolbar.

This hint works just as I stated. For some reason the OS considers special folders like Documents or your home or Library as treated differently. My guess when you were trying this, you were using a plain vanilla folder and not one consider as special by the OS.
