Bug#420221: x11-common: Generates duplicate InputDevice when synaptics touchpad present

Package: x11-common
Version: 1:7.1.0-16
Severity: normal

On this system, the automatically generated xorg.conf contained the following:

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "Configured Mouse"
        Driver          "mouse"
        Option          "CorePointer"
        Option          "Device"                "/dev/input/mice"
        Option          "Protocol"              "ImPS/2"
        Option          "Emulate3Buttons"       "true"

Section "InputDevice"
       Identifier      "Synaptics Touchpad"
       Driver          "synaptics"
       Option          "SendCoreEvents"        "true"
       Option          "Device"                "/dev/psaux"
       Option          "Protocol"              "auto-dev"
       Option          "HorizScrollDelta"      "0"

However, /dev/input/mice includes the data returned from /dev/psaux.  This
causes duplicate mouse events and odd mouse behavior.
