Thanks Seeon for pointing out this one. This may be a potential reason
why the "pop up" window (extra layout) is not detecting touch. FYI:
this is not on (0,0) co-ordinates.

Also, Daniel (in a separate context) pointed out that I have not
included freetype & pango in my openjfx cross-build which may be a
reason for application failure. So I'm looking into that one.

Thanks Lisa, for pointing that out. The "HelloGestures" application
worked like a charm!!
This is exactly what I needed for testing my multi-touch.
So I guess monocle multi-touch works for me!

I will now check my cross build.

Thanks Daniel, for pointing out that I forgot to "reply-all"..
