This is how my friends Z1 works and all my previous Android devices for that matter. But for some strange reason my home button doesn't do anything in to home screen or in any other pane. When I hit the home button the screen flashes quickly like it's trying to do something but nothing happens. Otherwise the home button works just like it should long press activated Google now and in other programmes it brings me back to the home screen. So the problem is somewhere in stock launcher.
Has anyone else noticed this and what might be the reason?
Try a different launcher like the excellent kit kat one from the Nex 5, it's been rock solid for me, but that issue you describe does sound weird, maybe a reflash of the rom you're using might do the trick.
Obviously reboot your phone often too, just incase you hadn't.
