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.

Any suggestions?

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 or (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.
