Description

This is really a minor issue (one could almost call it esoteric), but one of my pet peeves.

When selecting items in a module the item will be selected on mouse down and sometimes the mouse up event will then trigger the widget underneath.

Steps to reproduce in c&r module:
1. select one of the aspect ratios in the lower part of the list
2. selecting an aspect ratio which is covering the rotation slider

With the current version (~gc2472b2 with gtk 3.16.7-0ubuntu3) it only seems to happen if the mouse pointer has been moved a pixel or two before release. My memory is that it was triggered more often in earlier versions just after the switch to gtk 3.

My guess for the obvious solution would be to trigger the selection on mouse released.
It's probably a matter of a few minutes for someone with some GTK insight to fix it or find out that the event model doesn't support such a choice. Last time I looked i couldn't see an obvious option in the gtk docs myself.
