Comment 0 for bug 896922

There are a lot of open bug-reports concerning this defect, but due to the most popular report was closed by developers, with the demand to open a new report if this persists, I open a new bug-report.

When using the touchpad, it's often not working and stucks for seconds, in short, it is unusesable.
This bug still happens in Ubuntu 11.10 on a Lenovo L520 with 3.0.0-13-generic. Its a Synaptics touchpad, maybe it's kernel bug.

Dmesg produces the following output:
