I thought that I had set syndaemon to disable the touchpad while I type, and for 0.8 seconds afterwards. In order to change the default touchpad delay of 2.0 seconds, which is hard-coded into the touchpad settings dialog, I unchecked "Disable touchpad while typing" and added "syndaemon -i 0.8 -K -R -t" to the list of startup applications. Most of the time now, the touchpad doesn't register taps while I type, as I want. However, sometimes while typing, the cursor still flicks to a random spot in the text box, even while I am in the middle of typing. I don't take anywhere near 0.8 seconds between keystrokes - what could be happening here?
To verify that syndaemon is running with the correct options when the unwanted behavior occurs, I run:
$ ps -ef | grep syndaemon user 1840 1747 0 Sep23 ? 00:00:00 syndaemon -i 0.8 -K -R -t
Everything seems fine. What could the problem be? How do I go about finding out if syndaemon is to blame?
