Bug Description

when i touch something in slingshot(on my touchscreen), it will not respond but the button will look clicked.
when i use my mouse i don't have any problems.

Might be caused by upstream bug in GTK+

If you think you know a fix, please send it to me, i have a touch screen so i can test it.

Hmm, it only doesnt work on the Granite buttons (view switch, page numbers) and this is also true in Snap, Dexter and probably some others. I think this is a granite bug, correct me if i'm wrong. Every thing does work in Gtk apps, or gtk buttons in elementary apps.

This is actually a bug in Slingshot's code. We should be using the "clicked" signal instead of "button_release_event".
