ListView touch mode click on child views

This is driving me nuts. I have a ListView that uses an extended
ArrayAdapter<T>. Each row "cell.xml" contains a RelativeLayout and
within a few TextViews and ImageViews.

I have declared in the list xml definition a selector to change the
row background:

<item name="android:listSelector">@drawable/list_selector_background</

It works. But only if the click (touch mode) not done over any of the
elements contained in the RelativeLayout. Any click outside this
elements will (correctly) trigger the selector. I have tried using
android:focusable="false" on each child view without avail.

What do I need to do to be able to trigger the selector, no matter
where the user clicks?

 Have you tried setting focusable="true" on the entire View the makes
up the list item?

2. Drawing shape as ImageVIew

I hope somebody can help me with drawing an image using XML
I need to draw a part of a "chat bubble", it's top and it's bottom. To
understand what i mean you can check out an example delivered with
android emulator  API Demos -> Graphics - > Drawable -> ShapeDrawable
The last one bubble in this example is what i need to be constructed
with head image(ImageView), TextView and bottom image(ImageView).
This is a bottom element:
<shape xmlns:android=""
    <gradient android:startColor="#FFE1E1E1"
    <corners android:bottomLeftRadius="7dp"

Top is the same, with only reverted values for angle radiuses.
So the problem this shape is drawn with a small unwanted rounding on
top of a rectangle.
Replacing topLeftRadius and topRightRadius values with 0dp doesn't
help, shapes are not drawn at all in this case :(
