Bug#523946: xserver-xorg-input-synaptics: VertScrolling stops working after update to version 1.1.0

>> scrolling does not work even though the option is modified :

$ synclient -l | grep Edge
LeftEdge = 40
RightEdge = 983
TopEdge = 42
BottomEdge = 725
VertEdgeScroll = 1
HorizEdgeScroll = 1
EdgeMotionMinZ = 14
EdgeMotionMaxZ = 79
EdgeMotionMinSpeed = 1
EdgeMotionMaxSpeed = 102
EdgeMotionUseAlways = 0
You were right, calibrating as explained in the manual page (using
synclient -m 1), I managed to get back vertical scrolling using :
$ synclient RightEdge=930
No issue for me anymore, thanks!
As a side note, all options in hal fdi files must have a "string"
type, otherwise, it does not work.

syndaemon used to complain when SHMConfig is disabled... But this is
not the case anymore. Thanks.
By the way, the syndaemon manual page still lists a -s option (to use
the SHMConfig area), but it is not accepted by syndaemon.
