Oh I agree!  However, the bios is a layer between the hardware and the 
OS, and this bios has a setting for disabling the touchpad, so it could 
get in the way.  The inconsistency is the real mystery, but if the fault 
fails to re-appear, I think I can blame it on something that the bios 
was doing.
