MacBook Trackpad issues

My trackpad is behaving strangely in that in order to tap or drag with one finger, I have to press rather firmly with the entire pad of my finger, instead of just the tip. Strangely though, tapping and scrolling with two fingers works just fine lightly touching and dragging with my fingertips.

I've tried messing around with gsynaptics, but it doesn't seem to be getting me anywhere.

Would it help to disable the appletouch driver and just use the default usb hid driver, sacrificing multitouch? Or is there something else I can do?
