Clicking an empty area shouldn't close Slingshot

Bug Description

Right now, if I miss-click an app icon and instead click a blank area of slingshot, it closes. This forces me to wonder if I actually clicked the icon, wait to see if the app opens, and when it doesn't, to reopen slingshot and try to click the icon again.

It would be much better to not close Slingshot on miss-clicks, letting the user know their app won't be opening because Slingshot is still open.
