Impossible to move objects in dynamic graphics

Since version 8 it is no more possible to move objects with dynamic positions in a dynamic graphics. For example in the graphics below, the text and the point can be moved : p = {-.5, 0}; q = {.5, 0}; {Dynamic@p, Dynamic@q} Graphics[{Text["TEXT", Dynamic[p]], AbsolutePointSize[10], Point[Dynamic[q]]}, PlotRange -> 1] But not in that one which is just wrapped in a Dynamic Dynamic@Graphics[{Text["TEXT", Dynamic[p]], AbsolutePointSize[10], Point[Dynamic[q]]}, PlotRange -> 1] I expect that to work. Is it a bug ? Or if something has been changed, how can I now get back to previous (good) behaviour ? Thanks Nicolas
