[gpm] synaptic touchpad and stick!

I just got myself a new IBM thinkpad R40 and am very happy to see that
you got support for the synaptic touchpad that I have.  Everything with
the touchpad works great.

My only problem is that this laptop also has a "stick" (or whatever they
are called in enlish) and this works great if I don't use the synaptic
driver. When I use the synaptic driver the driver sometimes thinks that
I let go of the mouse buttons when I don't.

For example, when I use the stick to drag and drop it thinks that I let
go of the mouse buttons in the middle of the drag and drops whatever I'm
dragging. Hope that makes sence. 

Has anyone else seen this? Is there anything I can do to help debug this

Please CC me as I'm not on the list right now.

Thanks for a great piece of software.
