Bug Description

Currently, the close threshold is too small (you can close app with a fast swipe even for short distance movement), should be increased

Desired solution:

Increase the initial threshold (the one that activates closing action) by ~50%.

It is true that false positives in this case can be very annoying and destructive and we should minimise accidental application closings without making intentional closing action difficult. I proposed 50% increase to initial threshold value. It's hard to figure out a perfect value without hands on testing but when this is implemented let me know and I'll test it before merging it in.

Also to prevent jumping motion happening after threshold value is exceeded there is a propoasal in this bug report: https://bugs.launchpad.net/unity8/+bug/1352842
