Touch screen only working when touched twice; bug or feature?

This may be an Android 4.4 or Nexus 4 problem, but I suspect the former. I encrypted the device (using the in-built encryption stuff) and have found that now the touchscreen will only register if another part of it is touched. For example, when entering my PIN once I get into the OS itself, I have to hold down a finger somewhere else on the screen (usually having to move it between some of the later numbers).

When it comes to multi-touch features (zooming etc.), these work fine but still require another finger held down somewhere to work.

This is definitely a software problem as the touchscreen works fine when putting in the password to decrypt storage.

Is this supposed to happen - part of the encryption process - or is this a bug? Either way, is there a way to 'fix' this?

I just encrypted my phone, and ran into the same issue.

touches don't register, unless it's the 2nd finger on the screen.

nexus 4 running 4.4.3
