synaptics touchpad problem with doubletap
I am using a synaptics touchpad in my laptop.
It works just fine, but when I want to enable the doubletab function (either via Gconf in Gnome or straight via /etc/X11/xorg.conf) it freezes after a short while. It also freezes my laptop keyboard. I have to plug in a usb keyboard to log out from X and even after that the laptop keyboard is still frozen and I have to reboot.
It's only with the doubletap implementation; otherwise the touchpad works perfectly fine.
Any insights on dealing with this problem?
