Bug Description

[ Impact ]

Touching and dragging an icon on the dock blocks input to other apps Edit

[ Test case ]

- make sure the Ubuntu dock is visible
- Using a finger drag, for example, a LibreOffice icon up and down the dock and then drop
  it on Nautilus.
- When releasing the drag the icon would land back on the dock and I could continue to use
  the desktop as usual.

[ Regression potential ]

Touch events could not be handled properly at all by dock

---

Steps to reproduce

In GNOME Shell, make sure the Ubuntu dock is visible
Using a finger drag, for example, a LibreOffice icon up and down the dock and then drop it on Nautilus.
Notice that (sometimes?) the icon will continue to float above the dock and that the mouse will keep the clicky-finger icon.
Notice that you can still open Activities and launch an application
Notice however, that you can't actually interact with the application you have just launched

= What I expected to happen =

When releasing the drag the icon would land back on the dock and I could continue to use the desktop as usual.

For me things got a lot better when i deleted a "pixel saver" plugin from ~/.config/ or ~/.local or some such.

But now, I don't know if my gnome shell is in a "stock" configuration w.r.t. enabled default extensions.

So personally I was "fixed" for a while. I will upgrade to that gnome-shell, and will report if this issue (or something similar) regresses again like that.

I have installed GNOME Shell 3.28.4-0ubuntu18.04.1 from proposed.

I have tested this fix by dragging an icon up and down the launched with my finger and dropping on it on icons. In the past I could lock up the shell very easily. Now I can't get it to crash at all.

Marking as verification done.

Thanks all.
