I have installed it on Saucy on my Lenovo Thinpad Twist (Core i7
Ultrabook/Convertible with touch screen) and the touch left click still
gets stuck after some time, as described in

   race condition with active/passive grabs when opening menus with

   button1 gets stuck after a while

   Inconsistent mouse events for Acer T231H multitouch monitor

On Raring with the x-staging stuff the touch left click keeps working
for me and does not get stcuk after some time.

I hope this gets fixed in Saucy (or is it already given up as X is
approaching EOL due to being replaced by MIR and Wayland?).
