Ok. Passing on to acpi-devel@lists.sourceforge.net.

I've looked in the archives, and the problem looks very much like the one in 
this thread:

http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/forum.php?thread_id=4172848&forum_id=6102

And I've been noticing some keyboard glitches too, but these were to 
unfrequent, and usually occur only in one application (gaim) so I figured it 
might be a bug in gaim... guess not...

Unfortunately, the hints in this thread don't help. I've browsed the input 
system FAQ, but no dice.

The only thing that gives me a working synaptics touchpad is acpi=off.

It worked fine with 2.6.5.
