Missing support for thumb resting on bottom of clickpad

When using the trackpad on the MacBook Pro In Mac OS X it is possible to have
the thumb resting (ready to click) on the bottom part of the touchpad while
moving the mouse pointer around with your index or middle finger.
Likewise it is also possible to use two finger scrolling with the index and
middle finger on the upper part on the track pad while resting the thumb on the
lower part of the trackpad.
This behaviour is not currently supported with the synaptics driver in
12.04. It wil register a two finger scroll when the thumb is resting
in the bottom part and index finger moves around in the upper part.
I have tried playing aroud with the setting AreaBottomEdge that
disables all motion on the bottom part of the touchpad. Unfortunately
when this setting is enabled it still detects a finger in the area, so
it wil register a two finger scroll like before.
