I see that you use Kubuntu, I have no clue. In Ubuntu Hardy, you can
disable the touchpad with a checkbox in menu Preferences/Mouse/Touchpad,
but I cannot remember if this was available in earlier releases.

FWIW, I don't agree that it should disable by default, as I frequently
use both. BTW, Windows doesn't do this either, AFAICT. Having the option
would be nice,  I guess
