  touchpad stops working (moving the pointer doesn't work)

Bug description:
  Sometimes, in my Ubuntu 12.04 system on Toshiba AC100 (ARM), the
  touchpad doesn't react to movements anymore: i.e., I move the finger,
  but the pointer doesn't move (it is even being hidden because there
  are no movements).

  The buttons under the touchpad do work.

  Also, when I switch windows etc. the pointer does appear, and then
  hides again. So it's not a problem of the pointer in X, it's a problem
  either of the touchpad physically, or of the driver for it.

  I usually notice this when I'm working with a browser (Firefox),
  perhaps even with a map (like Google map) inside it. But this may be
  not related to the causes of the bug.

  A workaround: attach a USB mouse. (It works.)

  As I've found out somewhere under /sys/, the device is an Elantech
  touchpad, and the corresponding driver is psmouse.

  I couldn't find anything relevant in the dmseg output.
