 The new settings loaded to an older AVC touchpad in 11.3.1 os25 via
 /etc/init.d/olpc-configure are causing a few people (erikos, godiard,
 etc.) to report odd behavior such as the touchpad starting to refuse to
 respond.  We also have seen occasions where we only could move along the
 horizontal or vertical axis at any given point in time, turning circular
 movements into rectangular ones.

 Although I personally have just seen the latter on rare occasion in an
 air-conditioned office something may be wrong with the new settings, or
 missing.  I'm trying to reproduce the issue with a 4F touchpad unit & os25
 but have not been able to yet.
