:((( 0x200 gives the same result as 0x0200.
You only added this hint, nothing more?
The only solution I found was to plug-in a PS/2 mouse to have
a "working" touchpad.
For information I use a DELL Inspiron 4150.
Hmm I have a doubt, are these "changes" in RELENG_5? I did not checked,
but I wish/hope RELENG_5 is "sypnaptic safe".
