"Spoke" too soon; while typing an email I had the accidental swiping of
touchpad that then causes sytem "freeze."  Had the same problem in my MBPro
running various versions of LM, except there under "mouse & keyboard" they
also have "touchpad" and if I check the "disable tap to click while typing"
. . . that more or less "solves" the problem.  Couldn't find that feature
in Lu 16???

On this iBook the touchpad was having "issues" so I taped two layers of
credit card over the area, but still it catches the "vibes" and I guess it
does something in "synaptics" that causes the mouse cursor to jump, and
then the system crashes . . . have to shut down with power button.  Reboot
and it's again, "OK."
