XQueryPointer does not return button 1 set when touch on touchscreen is active

Bug Description

This causes compiz to not see the touch event as a mouse button event, and since compiz is not touch-aware it disregards the event entirely. This may also be causing compiz to not call XAllowEvents on grabbed button events, which causes all further pointer interaction from any device to be broken.

+1 from me. Effectively this just ORs in mouse->touch->state if defined
