  Cursor drifts randomly on Fujitsu Lifebook P1510D

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  My cursor drifts in a random direction at a random speed at seemingly
  random times. It started happening a few months ago when I was running
  Ubuntu 8.04 on the same machine, but the problem has been somewhat
  transient. A few days ago I reformatted my drive and installed Ubuntu
  8.10 from a USB CD drive. During the installation, the cursor started
  to drift again. It is particularly bad today, and I have been unable
  to find reports of anyone having a similar problem. I believe the
  Fujitsu Lifebook P1510D uses an Alps Stickpointer as its input device.
