    I'm working in Chrome mobile.  I'm having an issue where the grid does not scroll horizontally when the swiping is initiated over content that is a hyperlink.  I attached event handlers to touchstart and touchend, and I can see that touchstart is called, and while touchmove is happening the grid does not scroll.  If I enlarge the page to more than the window size it will actually scroll the page (but not the grid).

    Scrolling in the grid works if pointer events are disabled on the hyperlink using CSS, but the click event doesn't work if this is done so it isn't a workable solution (pointer-events:none).

    You have to click on the link just right to reproduce.  I'm logging the events to the page for the first Test link in the grid to make this clear.  Sometimes you think you are clicking on it, but it doesn't actually raise the touchstart event, and in that case scrolling works.  However, when it does raise the touchstart event scrolling does not.  This makes scrolling in the grid really inconsistent for users.
