Bug Description

This past week a regression was introduced. When swiping up from the bottom, any swipe past the limits of the bottom toolbar panel shows the hud. The user then needs to touch the screen to dismiss the HUD before using the toolbar actions. Its almost impossible to not show the HUD.

The HUD is also revealed for any swipe that starts in the lower panel area, so it also appears while scrolling long lists as in contacts or photos or messages.

The HUD icon is not shown from the UITK, it is handle outside of the UITK (although the HUD can control toolbar visibility in apps using dbus). Assigning it to Antti to investigate, but please ping me if you need something from UITK-side.

I noticed this on my device last week and thought it was a temporary issue in an app. Seems a wider problem. I made a video to show it.

I too see this. I've been trying to train myself to not swipe so high from the bottom to get the bottom panel, or to grab too low when scrolling a long list (like contacts). I haven't had tremendous success and see this quite frequently.

please revert the change to the last version. I will review with Cimi as we are iterating to find the right behaviour.
