Well, right now I'm in a rather hot and humid location (Buenos Aires,
Argentina), and will be here for 1 month, working. What things can I
do to replicate it?

 Let the machine get very warm?
 Get very sweaty hands?
 This place is not dusty - not sure what would help this
 Are kids hands more likely to trigger it than adult hands? I have a 4
year-old that can help us.
 Does being grounded vs wearing rubber soled shoes make a difference?

To Richard:

  What logs should I capture? Things to try?

Well, there *is* a new touchpad model in the works, I'm not sure
exactly when it enters production.
