Switching desktops with three-finger swipe

I've configured xorg to send three-finger swipes as mouse16, mouse17, mouse18 and mouse19 (top, right, bottom, left respectively).

As per the documentation I then added to my i3config:

bindsym --whole-window button19 workspace prev
bindsym --whole-window button17 workspace next

Swiping with three fingers is triggering these buttons (checked via xev), but i3 isn't switching my desktop.

This works if I use sxhkd -> i3-msg, but I find that a bit hacky. What am I doing wrong? Did I miss something?

That should work. File a bug report at https://github.com/i3/i3/issues.
