Bug Description

By design there is an initial threshold defined after which swipe to close is activated and the application starts to follow users finger. This threshold has been defined to prevent accidental closing actions when user's intention was to scroll through currently running apps. This is working fine and as designed.

The problem arises in that exact time when the threshold value is exceeded. When item starts following the finger movement there is an unwanted jump happening. Which I suspect being as much as the threshold value is. It's a small jump but still distracting.

Desired solution:
When threshold exceeded and item starts following the finger it happens smoothly without a jump.
