And if you'll try
'InputDevice "Synaptics_Touchpad" "CorePointer" "SendCoreEvents"'?

I have it in my Synaptics config @i386 and I vaguely recall that

May be this will fix your problems.

If not, drop me a letter, I'll try to get the real hardware into
my hands and test it.  But this likely won't be done until the end
of the week, sorry.
