Thank you for your bug report. What laptop/touchpad model do you use? What buttons are you talking about exactly?

The touchpad has 2 Buttons, right and left mouse buttons. This buttons aren't disabled, when I disable the touchpad in the gnome-control-center.

If I install the gnome-shell-extension "Touchpad indicator" and set the "switching methode" to Xinput, the buttons will be disabled. But if I use the "switching methode" Synclient or "Gconf Settings" the buttons still works after disabling the touchpad.

With "Touchpad indicator" with the setting "Auto Switch" enabled and "switching methode" Xinput all works as expected. If I unplug the mouse, the touchpad will be activated and vice versa.
