Anyone testing the touchpad issues:

Please go here:


At the bottom of the page in the section marked "Large Jump Logging 
Technique" there is a script. If you cut that script and then run it (as 
root) it will hook your Bulletin Board key (upper right next to frame) 
as a touchpad log hot key.

When you think the touchpad is doing funky stuff or misbehaving then hit 
the key.  Its snapshots the debug stream.  When you are done testing 
please send richard and pgf (at laptop) copies of the dmseg<date>.gz 
files it creates in /home/olpc.
