>  Option     "MaxTapMove" "0"

Can you increase MaxTapMove, maybe to 60 or so? 
Also, please attach the xorg.log.

You don't need the Device option if you have Protocol as auto-dev, and you don't need auto-dev since it is the default anyway. Likewise CorePointer is redundant.

Please also attach the output of synclient -m 20 when doing a two-finger tap.

I have the same problem here. It was working with 0.15.0-3 and broke with 0.15.1-2.

Actually, the tap still works, but I have to tap many times before one of the clicks is recognized. Timing problems maybe?

My xorg.conf file doesn't have a InputDevice for the touchpad.

The output of synclient -m 20 is:

[gdvieira@puck ~]$ synclient -m 20
Can't access shared memory area. SHMConfig disabled?

My xorg.log is attached.

My tap functionality became incredibly buggy once upgraded to 1.15.2-1. I tried all xorg.conf changes, gsynaptics settings, and my tap functionality was still damaged. I actually thought it might be a hardware problem and booted into Vista to check, and it worked perfectly under Vista. I then reverted to 1.15.0.3 and tap functionality was restored. It would appear 1.15.2-1 broke something.
