Did you also configure Xorg to use that driver?

Yeap, I'm using the basic configuration proposed by the authors. Here's the content of /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Section "InputClass"
    MatchIsTouchpad "on"
    Identifier      "Touchpads"
    Driver          "mtrack"

I would check Xorg's log ("grep -i mtrack /var/log/Xorg.0.log") because I
guess that driver it should be part of the Xorg's stack and not loaded as
standalone module.

There's nothing related to mtrack on the X log, I'm not even sure if X is parsing that conf file.
