Gestures performed outside active window are still handled

Bug Description

Ginn should perform gesture actions from a touchscreen only when the touches occur over the application window. Right now, gesture actions are executed for the active application no matter where the touches occur.

1. Open inkscape
2. Make inkscape a non-fullscreen window
3. Click on the inkscape window to ensure it is the active window
4. Perform a two finger pinch gesture outside the inkscape window

Expected results: No action is executed in inkscape
Current results: inkscape zooms the document

The correct fix is to focus the application under the cursor when the gesture starts. Then, perform actions for the now active application window.
