touch cursor - main and slave


I have a problem with the touch main and touch slave not working,

My TR wiimote connects fine, moves the touch cursor fine, and button presses A and B are displayed on screen. (normal behaviour)

however, even though the cursor changes shape according to the button presses, the button presses do nothing. I press A (touch main) over say a desktop icon and nothing responds. the cursor shrinks slightly but does not do anything.

Im not sure what the issue is, if anyone can direct me to help? or is it a developer problem?
