Sorry, just catching up (had to go and see Star Wars :-) — thanks for 
the help...

I found this page 
http://pappanyn.me/blog/2017/05/03/ubuntu-and-the-dell-xps-9560-touchpad/ 
which describes the parallel solution to a related problem (edge of palm 
being misinterpreted as finger touch).

I need to experiment.
