Bug description:
  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.
