You have not specified what computer you are using, or failing that,
what models of graphics chip, driver, screen and touchscreen hardware
and driver.

But anyway:

I have seen this too, on an MSI all-in-one PC.

I worked on the problem for a long time as did 2 of my colleagues. In
the end I could find no solution, we returned the machine to the
vendor and bought an Asus model instead.

We have different problems with that. :¬/

I did manage to install an elderly HAL driver aimed at Ubuntu 8.x/9.x
and get the MSI sort-of working, but only at an incorrect resolution,
with a mis-sized & badly fuzzy image and permanent misalignment of
about 1cm. In other words, totally unacceptable and unusable.
