I always thought it to be related, but I'm not 100% sure. I often notice
it later because I'm primarily using a bluetooth mouse. It could be that
the mouse was already stuck before going to suspend and I only noticed
it after resume when being "on the road" without my bluetooth mouse.

I'll have to check this next time it happends. Did you test this with
xev or how do you know that events still go to the x server?

I can confirm this. Did not notice it before.

me too, though I'm not sure if there aren't two unrelated bugs. One in
the synaptic driver and one related to suspend/resume. The original bug
reporter should do some tests to check this (CCed).
