 Replying to [comment:23 kweidner]:
 > FYI, my trackpad started misbehaving as described here after I had
 repaired my keyboard. I disassembled it again and noticed that the metal
 foil near the bottom right (4-lead) touchpad ribbon cable had two small
 ears on the wrong side of the ribbon, apparently touching and short
 circuiting it. After moving those two foil parts out of the way, it's
 working fine again.
 > So I guess this may be due to misassembly also, which is much easier to
 fix than cracks...

 Adding Wad and Richard to CC so they know to keep an eye out for this,
