Maybe it is some sort of event interfering, because if you move the wolf one hex anywhere and then drag and drop to attack it works fine.

I just tested this in the test scenario by dragging the Wolf Rider at 18,9 to attack the Orcish Archer at 10,7 from the southeastern hex, and the attack is still aborted after the unit moves. This also happens when clicking to move and attack as usual instead of dragging. I am not sure if there is a WML event interfering (it seems not) or the second issue you alluded to remains unfixed.

The movement and attacking drag+drop were actually 2 separate bugs.

The movement bug is now fixed in commit c53b204abdc722116ff2b3d486d0004b03454724

The attack bug from a distance was fixed (and previously introduced) in an earlier commit I believe by gfgtdf.

The unit drag-and-drop functionality for moving and attacking was lost in version 1.11.8 as the result of a regression related to the introduction of customizable mouse input configuration. Dragging units still results in the drag-and-drop mouse cursor being set, but moving and attacking is no longer possible.

This functionality has been present for multiple stable series and development versions up to 1.11.7, therefore this should be considered a blocker for future releases.
