Well, I'm not sure what you mean, but my "handler" is set to 1, I'm
not sure where the type comes into play, as I don't know that much
about adb devices:

adb: starting probe task...
adb devices: [2]: 2 c3 [3]: 3 1 [7]: 7 1f
ADB keyboard at 2, handler 1
ADB mouse at 3, handler set to 4 (trackpad)
adb: finished probe task...

No, what I meant was that this fn key setting is different than the
trackpad settings.  Mine used to be lot before pmud save/restored it's
value as well. (sorry I wasn't that clear)

Yes, this sounds good...

hmm, this fnkey setting seems to stick for me...
