  "disable touchpad while typing" doesn't work

Status in xserver-xorg-input-synaptics package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  "Disable touchpad while typing" checkbox in System Settings does not
  work on my Asus F5N laptop. The button to disable touchpad does not
  work as well. As a workaround I use "syndaemon -i 1 -K -d" command as
  per Ubuntu help page
  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SynapticsTouchpad/ but it does not
  fix the issue with the said chechbox and hardware button. I guess it
  still needs to access shared memory using SHMconfig option in
  xorg.conf in which case it is the same bug that has been around for 3
  years starting from Ubuntu 11.10
