Tap event cancels scroll event #726

I'm working on a mobile web app that has a scrollable div (overflow: scroll). I want to track the scroll event, but also want to track the tap event on elements inside the div. When using a click event (instead of a tap event) everything works fine. When I set a tap event listener, my scroll event does not fire. I'm assuming this is a bug that it is hijacking the scroll event, so I'm reporting it. Thanks for all your hard work bringing us this great jQuery alternative!


I suggest to use touchend events instead of the tap event (I use this workaround in my own code). Unfortunately tap does interfere with scrollable divs and I don't have a fix planned for this (too complex). I welcome any patches for it tho, maybe there's an elegant solution we overlooked.
