that's because there's some new multitouch code that has been merged,
you should be able to scroll with two fingers anywhere on the touchpad
now, this became the default behaviour. To get back the old style,
just add:
Option "VertEdgeScroll" "true"
to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf (or whatever it is called on
your machine)
