Bug Description

Currently, if the user right clicks a launcher item, opening the quicklist, then left clicks any launcher item, that item is activated as well as closing the quicklist. Ideally all that would happen is the quicklist would close and the launcher item would not be activated.

@Panagiotis, the patch looks quite good, thanks a lot for that!

I am afraid it is slightly inconsistent with Unity 2D's behaviour. In Unity 2D the menu is more transient than in Unity 3D. It does not require a click to exit it. It will disappear when the user is not hovering for enough time which probably means that the user went off to doing something else.
