[Linux] Ghost assets are left in the scene while drag and dropping prefabs to Scene while holding Ctrl key



How to reproduce:
1. Create new project
2. Add new Cube to the Hierarchy
3. Make Cube a prefab by dragging it from Hierarchy to Project tab
4. Drag Cube prefab to Scene and before releasing, hold Ctrl key
5. Release mouse button, but keep holding Ctrl key

Expected result: Prefab instance is created and it appears in Hierarchy
Actual result: Ghost prefab is left in Scene, it cannot be selected and it does not appear in Hierarchy

Reproduced with: 2022.1.0a15, 2021.2.3f1

Note: MacOS and Windows do not have this functionality (the cursor doesn't change), so does not reproduce
Once the asset is placed in Scene like that there's no way to delete it.
