To some embarrasment, it would seem that I have the 'Glidepoint' pad
... or at least that's what the probe is finding.  Sigh.  Looking at
psm.c, only the 'tapping action' is supported ... and that not very
well.  I have a touchpad and a small joy stick that appear as one
device.  I gather that this is made by Glidepoint.  Is there any
documentation on this?  Now that I know I have a different touchpad,
I'd like to hack around on it.
