Default [Q] Clockworkmod Recovery touch - touch problems

I installed Clockworkmod recovery version 6 (touch), and the swipe gestures dont really work. It says swipe up and down to navigate and swipe to the right to enter a menu and to the left to go back to the main menu. The up and down gestures work, but in order to enter a menu, I have to press to power button, which I don't really want to do, because if I swipe to the right, nothing happens,I've tried every kind of gestures I could think of....Is anyone experiencing this? or am I doing it wrong?
