    Thanks a bunch! So far, so good. I've got the older version locked so I don't have to worry about it getting upgraded accidentally, and I'll be watching to see what happens with that package in the future.

    So if it stops over a day or so report back, that'll at least be some indication that the cause is in or related to the xserver-xorg-input-synaptics upgrades of late.

    After about a day I haven't had the scrolling lock up once, so I think that's a pretty strong indication that the xserver-xorg-input-synaptics package is the culprit here. Now we need to figure out what changed that's causing this issue. I get the impression that there is some specific conflict somewhere because if it were a more general problem with the package I would expect a lot more activity in this thread.

    In post 8 I posted the changelog for the 2 packages after 1.5.99.902-0ubuntu3
    In both cases the changes were just a single patch to the current source
    So assuming you are using 1.5.99.902-0ubuntu3, then go back to the link for all precise versions, download the next one & update (-0ubuntu4

    Try that one for an extended time, if no occurances then update to -0ubuntu5 & see
    (so far I haven't had it happen here yet but that may not be indicative.

    Are you on 32 or 64 bit?

    64 bit here. I'll go ahead and update to the next version and see what happens.

    The next version up (ubuntu4, one version before the current one) worked without fault after day of testing. The current version still freezes up, so that seems to indicate that the bug is in the latest version.

    It's recently been mentioned in the current report that "patch 203_fix_coasting_speed.patch" seems to be the cause for someone else

    So for yourself, till or if fixed you may as well use the 0ubuntu4 version
    If you have a LP account you could comment that the 203 patch causes also in the report

    Done. Hopefully the ball can get rolling on this now. I'm glad I was able to help, even if it was just installing and testing a few different versions of a package.

    Just to bring this thread back up from the depths one last time, it seems this issue has been solved in an upcoming update (it's currently in precise-proposed). I've been testing version 0ubuntu5.1 now for over a day and I haven't had the scrolling lock up once.

    Thanks for the heads up! I was getting very worried about this issue.

    I can scroll up-down just on the right side, but not in the center of the page or in other points.
