Synaptic X Bug

I would just like to raise awareness of this bug:
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.
