Since Oneiric I have this problem, too. - I need the "double tap and drag" because my left touchpad button is a little bit defect. (Also I find it very handy only using the touchpad for dragging things or marking text and text lines without the buttons...) I can't double-tap and drag anymore since my upgrade to Oneiric.

The explanation in post #8 I don't understand, sry! If I double-tap (very fast or slower) nothing happens if I move my cursor after the double-tap. If I double-tab on a word in an application (i.e. in Opera or Terminal, ...) the word becomes highlighted.

Here are my synclient options:

I also changed the option "TapAndDragGesture" to "1" but that made no changes for the missing "double tap and drag" behaviour.

Please fix it or give me/us a hint how we can establish the wanted behaviour.

Thanks & best regards!
