I have a Dell Latitude D820 (uses same synaptics touchpad as your)
with the same issue as you.  There is another change required by the
driver to work correctly.

you need to add this line in your /boot/loader.conf


This didn't make it work for me, but I would be curious if it did for
you and I can try to duplicate what you are doing.

Sorry, I didn't mention this - I already added it (without the quotes;
I guess they are not significant):
$ grep synaptics /boot/loader.conf
