[ubuntu] Acer Mousepad too sensitive (reads touch when there is none)

http://ubuntuforums.org – I have an Acer 3810T. One of the biggest problems is that the touchpad goes berserk unless I am essentially flipping the ceiling off while I use it. When I am using it, if another finger gets within about a quarter of an inch, the mouse cursor bounces all over the screen, clicking random things, highlighting text etc. Another consequence is that it will often register a click while I am moving my finger in to use the touchpad since it registers the touch before I can get to it. I have not been able to find a relevant post here or fix via Google. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks JTS (Hardware)
