When using Ubuntu 12.04, if I happen to touch one of the extreme edges of my touchpad, my cursor spontaneously jumps to the top left corner of the screen. I have tried disabling all touchpad features within system settings, but this behavior persists.

Is this a bug or a "feature" gone wrong? Can anybody help me out? Thanks.

It seems to be some problem in your touchpad drivers. Try the following command:

sudo apt-get install --reinstall xserver-xorg-input-synaptics

Do you experience the same when booted from the Live USB or CD? –  green7 Aug 19 '12 at 13:04
    
Interestingly, no. –  Tom D Aug 20 '12 at 14:44
