Hi Daniel,

I'm using the PreFinal from http://maemovmware.garage.maemo.org/ -
Does that sound like it would be the cause of my problems?

Using hildon.GtkIconView I am able to pan by using the scrollwheel on my mouse, but if i click anywhere to start panning, it immediately activates whatever was clicked on. gtk.IconView does pretty much exactly the same thing. Removing the connect function obviously allows you to pan freely.
