I had the same problem yesterday after an update. I don't know what is
the cause, but it seems that the synaptic options "TapButton" are
set to zero instead of "" respectively now.

I also haven't seen any information about this.

I solved this by creating a "/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-synaptics.conf"
file with the following content:
Option "TapButton1" "1"
Option "TapButton2" "2"
Option "TapButton3" "3"
