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.

Example:
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.
