Public bug reported:

Using the latest 13.04, I open Settings, and under "Mouse and Touchpad",
I change the speed of the touchpad pointer from its middling value to
the maximum on the scale.

It has an immediate effect; I can now scroll across my screen without
lifting my finger.

However, within a minute, the improved behaviour goes away.  No change
is visible in the settings interface, initially.

If I change to "All Settings" tab and back to "Mouse and Touchpad", I
see that indeed the default has been reinstated.

So it is impossible for me to permanently change the touchpad behaviour.
