Re: problem with touchpad after upgrade

I recently did an extensive dist-upgrade in testing, and now my
synaptics touchpad is not registering two-finger scrolling or edge
scrolling reliably. It behaves like a sticky mouse: when I try to
scroll often nothing happens, but if I keep doing it eventually it will
start to work, sort of, but in very jerky unworkable fashion.
As far as I can see the upgrade did not affect any synaptics-related
package, but I could be missing something.
This is the second time an upgrade messed up two-finger behavior on my
touchpad. The last time I fixed it by messing with some settings in
synclient, but nothing seems to help this time.
If it's any consolation, I'm also experiencing this exact same issue on
a HP PowerBook 4515s. And it started occuring after upgrading
xserver-xorg-input-synaptics to version 188.8.131.521-1 or 184.108.40.2062-1
(I'm not exactly certain which version).
In my case the pointer also jumps around to the upper-left corner of the
screen or to the top of the screen and it gets "stuck" there, I'm unable
to move it. I can unstuck the pointer by right clicking.
