Default Synaptics touchpad mistaken(?) for Logitech Wheel Mouse

After running all the tests suggested in this thread (including kernel
configuration, make.conf, tpconfig, /proc/bus/input/devices), I find
myself in pretty much the same situations as you are.

Today, when re-compiling the kernel, I found this link [1] to the
synaptics project, suggesting troubleshooting methods. Looking at
their Changelog [2], synaptics [3] looks kinda dropped out of
maintainance; the latest version "Made the driver work with xorg 7.1".
If you're on 7.3, like I am, who knows whether it works. A last
suggestion, try upgrading synaptics to the last unstable version,
update the config files and cross your fingers.
