Description (last modified by Quozl) (diff)
on three or four mechanical keyboard 1.75 models i've tried: the cursor begins to "wander" on its own as soon as its put into ebook configuration. this can be observed both in OFW with "test /mouse" or under X. the kernel identifies these touchpads as "ImExPS/2 Generic Explorer Mouse" -- they may be AVC touchpads, since our kernels don't include the Sentelic driver that would be specific to the AVC touchpads.
i've found one AVC laptop in the cambridge office, and it too exhibits the ebook wandering behavior, though it feels like it's to a lesser extent than on the 1.75 models.
the two membrane keyboard 1.75 models i've tried do _not_ exhibit this behavior. those laptops both have Synaptics touchpads.
