There is a better way that I had found while was answering to
Norikatsu's letter: add the string
Option "AllowEmptyInput"
to your xorg.conf "ServerFlags" section and you should see no
additional mouse devices and probably Synaptics mice will be alive.

Roman, this concerns you too ;))  Please, try it if you prefer to
use single pointer from touchpad.
