This sounds like a known bug. Check out the Launchpad bug reports in comment #35 of this thread: http://bit.ly/qx2da3. Mark yourself as affected in the correct ones, and try the fixes described. For me, I fixed it by turning off the 'disable touchpad while typing' option in 'Mouse and Touchpad' settings.

Good luck, I hope this is helpful!
