Synaptic X Bug

Hello everyone.

I would just like to raise awareness of this bug:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xserver-xorg-input-synaptics/+bug/68370

It's currently only marked as medium but should be critical.

Basically if anyone using a Synaptics touchpad (any laptop user?) tries
to switch user the touchpad is disabled. The only way to get the pad
back is to switch to a VT and back to X where it drops you back in the
original users session.

If this wasn't bad enough FUSA is now installed by default in Gutsy. So
if someone installs Gutsy on a laptop then tries to use FUSA it will
leave them without a touchpad working, unless they guess to switch to a
VT and back.

IMO this should be a critical bug.

Thanks.
