When I try to drag a tab outside the window panel, I am unable to do so. Dragging inside (rearranging) is possible.

This is so obvious that I am sure I am missing something, since there are even videos on the internet showing that this could be done, but... I can't.

I am using 17.10, Ubuntu on Xorg, updated from an older distribution.

    Yes, that's what I do. There is no drag handle at all. I am only allowed to move the tab to the left or to the right, inside the tab button area. – Panayotis Dec 14 '17 at 2:53

Looks like this was disabled because it causes GNOME Terminal to crash. See bug #769161:

I've disabled detaching a tab by DND for now until the gtk bug is fixed.
