      Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      java version "1.8.0_131"
      Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_131-b11)
      Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.131-b11, mixed mode)

      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601]

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      If you try to select an entry in the popup list of a ComboBox on a touch device (put the finger on the entry), this selection is ignored if you "produce" a minimal drag with your finger

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      Open the popuplist of a combobox by touching on it
      Select an entry with your finger by pressing the item, drag you finger only a little bit and release the touch

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      The pressed entry should be selected
      ACTUAL -
      Selection remains on the previous selected entry

      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced often.

      CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
      only possibility seems to be to write own skins and behavior classes where the latePress flag is only set to false if the mouseDragged is not a synthesized event
