Roll psm.c (/usr/src/sys/isa/psm.c) to version 1.70 and rebuild the
kernel. At least in my case, sensitivity becomes sane and double tap and
drag is there.

Last psm.c, I have tried to no avail was 1.79. I just cvsup'ed my system
and saw psm.c 1.81, maybe it has changed to the better. I will know for 
sure in couple of hours, when build/install is done. However, 1.70 is
sure bet.
