I've got a laptop with Ubuntu 11.10 with classic gnome-failsafe desktop and auto-login set up. Sometimes, when I start the laptop and after typing in the gnome-keyring password, the touchpad cursor won't work. But if then I do Ctrl+Alt+Del to log-out, and login again, the touchpad will work fine.

Any ideas why this might be happening?
