Hey all. Does this dconf key no longer function?

I have a script that sets my setxkbmap and miscellaneous input tweaks on login and resume. It's stopped working since the upgrade to 13.10. Do I need to put this somewhere else now? I really appreciated having a simple, intended place to keep the trigger for this script, and I don't want to have to do some awkward-*** workaround with cron. Crazy thing is, I know it's getting triggered, because it's responsible for my natural scrolling settings (the xinput lines), but the xkbmap and synclient settings aren't sticking when I resume from suspend.

synclient ClickFinger1=1
synclient TapButton1=1
synclient ClickFinger2=3
synclient TapButton2=3
synclient ClickFinger3=0
synclient TapButton3=0
synclient HorizTwoFingerScroll=1
synclient VertTwoFingerScroll=1
synclient VertEdgeScroll
synclient ClickPad=0
xinput set-prop 12 297 -74 -74
xinput set-prop 13 297 -74 -74
xinput set-prop 14 300 -74 -74
xmodmap -e "keycode 248 = VoidSymbol"
setxkbmap -option caps:backspace
setxkbmap -option terminate:ctrl_alt_bkspc

Is all.

Edit: Correction: only natural scrolling engages on cold boot (which means the script is run but preempted somewhere.) xkbmap settings persist over suspend (or are engaged on suspend - but I think they're just persistent) while synclient settings are lost every time I close the lid.

Bump with a better question: If not the hotplug command, how do you all manage peripheral configuration? All the GUIs are insufficient, and they're still removing features! (Not a complaint, exactly - the GUIs need to be simple, but I want my hacks to stick.)
