I have seen this before, what I have found is that the slider has a
"catch" it seems.  When I thought I had slide it far enough, there was
actually a little more that it was needing to slide before it recognized
it.  If I find I am having problems with the slider, if I push a little
more it works.

Another item I have seen is that if you push it, and get frustrated and
push it a couple more times, it kind of "catches up", and all of the
sets works in succession.
