Description Andrew Price 2014-03-13 14:06:47 EDT
Description of problem:

Sometimes when I'm using my touchpad and there's a particularly heavy load running on my laptop it gets into a state where it only scrolls using one finger, two-finger scrolling no longer works and tapping no longer works.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Seems to happen fairly frequently but I couldn't reproduce it at will, I don't think.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run a heavy memory/cpu load on the machine, slowing it down, but continue to use the touchpad for web browsing or whatever. Last time it happened I was running a test suite which uses a lot of memory (causing some swapping but nowhere near OOMing) and CPU time.

Actual results:

The above behaviour occurs, plus this gets printed to Xorg.0.log repeatedly when I try to use my touchpad:
