Synaptics touchpad may result in spurious PS/2 mouse data upon resume

There might be an issue with the Synaptics touchpad coming back from resume with an XO-1.5 in 11.2.0 os22, as well as prior builds from the past month or so. The issue is somewhat rare so I cannot quite set a start date to say if this is Fedora-14 related or new firmware (currently Q3B07) related.
When this happens, the following may be seen in the message logs:
[ 1942.720279] psmouse.c: TouchPad at isa0060/serio1/input0 lost synchronization, throwing 1 bytes away. [ 1943.257724] psmouse.c: resync failed, issuing reconnect request [ 1945.044530] psmouse.c: detected synaptics, disable synaptics tap-to-click
This issue does not appear nearly as often as the ALPS touchpad resume issue (perhaps once or twice per week in my XO usage), but when it does it can be quite random and clicky before the reset kicks in. If you are on Sugar's main menu while resuming the system it may potentially start several applications at once.
