I believe that's a known issue, at least the touch screen config will
be tweaked in the next build.

Known issue, we need to forward port all the trackpad patches from the
other kernels. Not sure what the status is.

Known issue.

I think this is improving, either way it's known.

Yes, but I think the driver details are still to be ported to the kernel.

The virtual keyboard is in the os5 release. In os6 there's an
improvement that should make it appear when in ebook mode. Whether all
the rest of the glue is there I'm not sure.
