Synaptics 1.5.99-1 is completely fucked for me.

1) Circular scrolling direction is reversed. This can't be a feature,
2) Speed/acceleration behaviour changed, my touchpad is now much faster
than it should be (I could reconfigure that, but I shouldn't have to).
3) The cursor keeps "coasting" when I keep the finger on the touchpad
but stop moving. Coasting is disabled in the settings as far as I can
see (and it should only be coasting if I move towards an edge of the pad).

I managed to build 1.5.0 against the newest xorg-server, but
acceleration breaks then as well (touchpad is completely unaccelerated
in this case).

My touchpad:
 AlpsPS/2 ALPS DualPoint TouchPad

This is a blocker for 1.12 for me.
