Bug Description

Zesty Desktop up to date on Dell Inspiron 11 3000 with touchscreen

The user cannot interact with the window controls (close/minimize/maximize on the left of the title bar) with his fingers. Taping them does nothing but they work fine with the mouse or trackpad.

The recommended way to interact with those is after a three-finger tap (they become bigger touch targets).

But yeah, they should work with touch regardless.

Confirmed :/ this is a regression, used to work fine until we introduced the touch menus.
