	Uh, oh! :-)

	I think that I should have written "almost all the
	behaviours". :-)

	If I am not mistaken, BenH once said that he suspected that
	ignoring the trackpad while tapping is something probably
	related to some timeout that MacOS X implements.

	I don't think that trackpad supports this currently. At least
	it would be nice to have this timeout be implemented, say, via
	a /proc/sys entry (as it would be the case with the current
	modes of operation of trackpad).

	But I don't know if implementing this would be the start of
	one of those endless threads of "if this belongs to the kernel
	or to userspace". :-)

	Anyway, I do think that a feature like this would be nice to
	have in a cross platform way, since I also have the same
	problems with my old Compaq Armada V300.

	Sorry to the bring the bad news, Roger...
