If you tap on a link using the stylus pen and then move away from that link while still holding the pen to the screen, fxmetro will stall for about 20s and won't accept any new input. This issue makes it very difficult to use a stylus pen with fxmetro.

Tried this on IE metro, didn't run into this issue.

Video of issue:
- http://youtu.be/_On9yVW41ME

Steps to reproduce the issue:

1) Open fxmetro
2) Once opened, go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page and select any random article
3) Using the stylus pen, tap and hold on a text link and move away from the link while still on the screen
4) Once you move away from the link let go of the stylus pen and you'll notice that the browser has completely stalled

Current Behavior:

- Taping/Holding and then moving away from a link using the stylus pen completely stalls fxmetro

Expected Behavior:

- fxmetro should never stall giving the user the impression that the browser has completely crashed
