Ticket #7341 (new defect)
touchpad is a little off the rails in olpc3

The touchpad doesn't work very well in the olpc3 builds. Decreasing sensitivity helps (#7211) but does not make the problem completely go away.
To reproduce, just move the cursor around the screen for a minute or so. Sooner or later the cursor will jump around erratically for a while, making it very hard to click on anything. Also sometimes when you lift your finger from the pad, the cursor jumps to some other position (making clicking hard - you position the mouse at the right location, but then it moves somewhere else when you are ready to click)
I understand there is a completely rewritten touchpad driver in this stream, so that would be the obvious suspect?
