The SHMConfig option seems to have no effect on the problem. It is
rather some ACPI-related thing, as I could figure out from the Linux
ACPI mailing list archives (on linux the same problem occurs, but more
severely - no recovery from freezes), the problem seems to be with the
access of embeddedcontroller, that makes the batter checking. But it
is a bi technical for me...

I am running FreeBSD 6.2 on a ThinkPad R52 with a synaptics touchpad.

My system does not have that sysctl variable:
    sysctl: unknown oid 'hw.psm.synaptics_support'

These messages occur on my R52 only after awaking from suspend to ram
(zzz). The touchpad works regardless provided the sleep is requested
from within X11.

Does changing the SHMConfig option (xorg.conf) make any difference?

I have:
    Section "InputDevice"
    ...
        Option "SHMConfig" "on"
    ...
    EndSection
