      Description

      When typing directly on a mac book laptop, your palms incidentally hit the trackpad, creating spurious touch events. When you are editing items in a QTreeView or QTableView with the standard delegate editor (QLineEdit), these spurious touch events get turned into focus events that interrupt your typing (the delegate editor loses focus).

      turning off WA_AcceptTouchEvents in the window where the view lives does not fix the problem. nor does setting Qt::AA_SynthesizeMouseForUnhandledTouchEvents app attribute to false.
