That happens if you run it under X - if you do it from a console it
seems to work - but if you install the tpconfig package (not the old
"synaptics" package) it sets it up during 'debconf'. tpconfig will
run from /etc/init.d.

However, the original "synaptics" module let me configure corner
taps, and this one says my touchpad doesn't support them. Now, I
know it does under windows (not that I can figure out any way to make
use of corner taps in windows) so I think I'll try downgrading and
seeing if I really can do anything with a corner tap.
