For the record: 'twas a bug in the driver, which the latest update fixed. ClickPad must also be set to "1".

(There's no separate physical button.) How is that different from what you describe?
Is your trackpad like this? With or without those lines. http://www.blogcdn.com/www.engadget.com/media/2010/05/hppavilionhands-on05.j...
Yup, albeit on a mac.
Do you have xf86-input-synaptics-clickpad intalled?
No, I was using xf86-input-synaptics. Using -clickpad made no difference in behaviour.
(Sorry if I'm being particularly dense. Maybe I should just build an old version from source.)
If you are using the ..-clickpad pkg you can get old version from the general AUR git clone. Or from my own git of my PKGBUILDS https://gitorious.org/huulivoide-aur
Hmmm. Thanks for the pointer.
This functionality isn't so bad (apparently, I almost never use right click anyway) - I think I'll just live with it until I have time to dive into the source to change the behaviour to what I want (possibly submitting a patch to make it configurable).
Thanks for the help.
