Comment(by martin.langhoff):

 Still, kbdshim has _two_ mechanisms to prevent tp input while in ebook
 mode: disable the touchpad _and_ discard input.

 Actually, looking at the discard input codepath, I found my answer -- it
 sends debugging messages if it gets input to discard:

     if (is_local && ebook_mode) {
         dbg(3, "ebook: discarding touchpad");

 So to test we need to run it in debug mode.
