Description Joe Wright 2018-12-13 22:30:27 UTC
Description of problem:
- If you minimize an application, then attempt to right click it in the bar, but do not release the right click and move the mouse pointer off of the app tab and release the right button in the main part of the screen, the left click doesn't work to open the app in the tab bar.  UNTIL you right click anywhere else...then it works

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
- RHEL 7.6, RHEL 7.5 (Gnome 3.22/ Gnome 3.28)

How reproducible:
- 100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Minimize an application
2. Right click it in the minimized bar for the application, but do not release the button
3. Drag the mouse to the desktop while continuing to hold the right mouse button
4. Release right mouse button
5. Left click no longer works

Actual results:
- Left click stops working until you right click again somewhere on the desktop

Expected results:
- Mouse button release registers properly?

this is the fix that would have minimal impact on other extensions and code.
