 The touchpad doesn't work very well in the olpc3 builds. Decreasing
 sensitivity helps (#7211) but does not make the problem completely go

 To reproduce, just move the cursor around the screen for a minute or so.
 Sooner or later the cursor will jump around erratically for a while,
 making it very hard to click on anything. Also sometimes when you lift
 your finger from the pad, the cursor jumps to some other position (making
 clicking hard - you position the mouse at the right location, but then it
 moves somewhere else when you are ready to click)

 I understand there is a completely rewritten touchpad driver in this
 stream, so that would be the obvious suspect?
