Workaroud is here.
1.14.4-5.fc20.x86_64 doesn't affect this problem.
# yum downgrade xorg-x11-server-Xorg xorg-x11-server-common
# rpm -q xorg-x11-server-Xorg xorg-x11-server-common
Same here on a Dell 610 and a few other more recent Dell's.
from a terminal. This of course does not survive a boot.
'G-spot' on the same machine is not affected.
This affected me after the last update. I was also able to use synclient MinSpeed=10 to get my touchpad to a usable speed. This mght be a problem with the gnome-settings-daemon since that also updated about the same time.

Have you tried actually reading the bug this is marked as a duplicate of ?
Note that, as mentioned in that bug, "sudo yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing xorg-x11-*" will fix this.
Yes, I tried reading the bug. I found that it described a similar effect but with a different environment. I also found that it was posted before I started having trouble with my touchpad. I didn't read all of the comments because it does not appear to be the same bug. So I asked the question here.
I tried to apply following packages from update-testing repo.
It fixed this issue in my environment (Dell Latitude E6230).
