  track pad often freezes or gets jerky - it works intermittently

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Randomly, the trackpad will stop movingthe pointer around the screen
  reliably. It may freeze for a second, or several. Or it may repeatedly
  freeze and release a few times a second, making it jerk across the
  screen. Scrolling is affected the same way. I found a workaround that
  involves turning psmouse off and on again. That seems to work.
  Sometimes just for a few minutes, other times for a few days.

  Second problem: The system clock disappeared from the 'taskbar' at the
  top. The clock settings in the system settings menu was grayed out. I
  found a procedure to turn that on and off again too. So far so good.

  The first problem might have happened a little bit under 13.04 as
  well, I'm not certain if the first time was before or after the
  upgrade to 13.10

  Sorry I'm a noob. I'm not even sure if this is the right way to make a
  bug report.
