Moving window with touchscreen grabs wrong window...

Please let me know if someone has a better way to describe this issue; I fear a lot of my trouble finding a solution has had a lot to do with difficulty describing it.

I have a Samsung Series 5 ultrabook (NP540U3C), with a touchscreen.  Besides this issue, it works without any problems.  I'm using gnome3.

If I have two windows open, I can touch the titlebar and move the window in focus.  If I move it, and then tap to bring the second window into focus, and attempt to move the second window as well, my tap/drag moves the *first* window instead.  Clicking via mouse on the second window doesn't help: grabbing any titlebar with the touchscreen will move that first window I dragged with the touchscreen.  The only thing I can find that resets this behavior is switching to a virtual terminal and then back into X.  Then, it's the same story: I am stuck only able to touch-move the first window whose titlebar I touch.

I don't see any of this behavior when working *within* windows (I can tap windows to focus, click elements inside, etc.), so I suspect this has something to do with mutter.  Beyond that, though, I'm absolutely lost.

How can I proceed with finding what's going on here?   Does anyone with a touchscreen see this sort of behavior?  I have created a test user to double-check that it this problem shows up before my user's personal desktop configuration.  The problem has been here since my latest switch to Arch a couple months ago; a recent upgrade isn't to blame.

As always, thanks for any help.
