I don't know whether it'll help, but with my T60 I've also found that
shutting off the touchpad in the Bios has affected the trackpoint. As
a result, I leave them both enabled in the Bios but I stop the
touchpad from working in X by adding something like the following to

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "Synaptics Touchpad"
        Driver          "synaptics"
        Option         "CorePointer" # This line might need to be remmed out
        Option          "TouchPadOff" "1"
Section "ServerLayout"
        InputDevice     "Synaptics Touchpad"

There's also a handy little program called xev which will tell you
what event X is seeing.

Of course, YMMV...
