Hello Pedro,
this is a bug, the events should always be properly paired. Please file

if it's not a bug we have a publicly searchable record of it for future 

Note that fixing the bug will probably lead to the main window getting 
no events from the gesture (the hiding popup will consume the whole 
gesture instead of just the pressed event). We've already chosen this 
approach when dealing with a similar issue:
