Description of problem:
Installing xorg-x11-drv-synaptics-1.6.3-3.fc17.x86_64.rpm through fc17 updates leads to X crashing when pushing the left touchpad (hard)button on my HP Pavillion dv5.
As a workaround, the bug can currently be fixes by reverting to the previous release of the package (org-x11-drv-synaptics-1.6.0-1.fc17.x86_64.rpm).

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

How reproducible:
Click the left touchpad button (lower left corner)

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Let yum update your fc17 release to current (xorg-x11-drv-synaptics-1.6.3-3.fc17.x86_64.rpm).
2.Restart X (e.g. logging out).
3.Push the left touchpad button.
Actual results:
X crashes

Expected results:
X does not crash

Additional info:
Can currently be fixed by reverting to the previous release of the package (org-x11-drv-synaptics-1.6.0-1.fc17.x86_64.rpm).

Just found this bug to have been reported already.
However, the possibly fixed release org-x11-drv-synaptics-1.6.3-4.fc17.x86_64.rpm is not applicable through my update mirror yet :(
