I just rebuilt my xorg.conf on my old laptop due to a fairly bizarre
problem involving man running away (100% cpu), but only on urxvt terms
with over 36 lines.  There was so much cruft in my xorg.conf that I
decided to start from scratch, which solved my problem. At any rate, I
had to re-install the synaptics driver, and one difference I noticed
with your xorg.conf is you have no ServerLayout stanza at the end. 

Here's mine:

Section "ServerLayout"
	Identifier    "Default Layout"
	Screen	      	       "Default Screen"
	InputDevice	       "Generic Keyboard"
	InputDevice	       "Synaptics Touchpad"
 	InputDevice     "USB Mouse"  "CorePointer"
