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
Identifier "Synaptics Touchpad"
Option "CorePointer" # This line might need to be remmed out
Option "TouchPadOff" "1"
InputDevice "Synaptics Touchpad"
There's also a handy little program called xev which will tell you
what event X is seeing.
Of course, YMMV...
