Comment(by carrott):

 To see how bad these touchpads are, try building anything non-trivial
 (more than 3 or 4 blocks) in turtle art blocks. Here you need to have fine
 control to snap things together and sometimes you struggle to get a block
 in the same quarter of the screen as the target. I recently had the
 misfortune of building a quick accelerometer demo in turtle art on Kid an
 XO-1.75 C1 with "grid" keyboard which has one of these touch pads.

 I have not investigated strategies to work around the problem.
