In my case, I've had xserver-xorg-input-synaptics removed, because it
was messing something in Gnome, like touchpad settings not showing up in
system settings. While you could/should report bug about some package,
you can also try uninstalling it too, perhaps it will solve your
problem. If not, you can reinstall it. As for questions 1 and 2, it is
logical course of actions and you did not provide much things to start
with, but I do apologise if it sounded condescending to you, or
something like that.
