I just picked up a new HP DV7 laptop. The touchpad is a new-fangled multitouch Synaptics. I don't care about the multitouch scrolling or zooming however when I touch it with one finger and bump it with another it goes batty and the cursor jumps around the screen. This problem occurs from a Fedora 14 live cd as well so it's not distro specific.

Does anyone happen to know if this problem has been fixed with the latest Synaptics driver that's in Natty or Debian Sid or of a way to fix it in Maverick.

I was just wondering before I take the time to build it for Maverick or switch to Debian Sid.

Thanks
