  [Dell Inspiron 7347] Cannot select multiple file by click and drag
  with two fingers

Bug description:
  CID: 201406-15234 Dell Inspiron 7347

  User cannot do the "click and drag" on the clickpad with more than one
  finger on 14.04.2 (3.16 kernel)

  1. Open your home directory.
  2. Press the clickpad with one finger, and move the cursor across several files with another finger
  3. Put a finger on the clickpad and try to move the cursor across several files after click on the clickpad with another hand.

  Expected results:
  * You should be able to select multiple files

  Actual result:
  * Cursor won't move, you can't select multiple files with step 2 or 3, the only way to do this selection is to press the clickpad with one finger and move the cursor with it (or do a double tap and hold)

  BTW, I'm not sure if it's a by-design feature.
