Comment 35 for bug 943880

I didn't notice at least 1 time touchpad self-disabling, now that bug
report window doesn't appear. Should I try that package anyway?
By the way, touchpad disables every time I type anything (even accidental
arrow keystrokes) during kernel/modules (don't know exactly) load while
system startup. This problem happens since 11.10 (or even 11.04), what can
that be? Is it the-same-based bug?
