Public bug reported:

Touchpad handling appears to have been refactored somewhat in bionic -
which led to the surprise of having my settings changed on upgrade ....
but even when I tracked down the new gsettings property of
org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.touchpad click-method, it fails to behave
as documented, so I cannot get the behaviour I want, and had before.

The code in function meta_input_settings_x11_set_click_method_synaptics
added by the patch interprets click-method 'default' as setting specific

However, the gsettings schema description says 'default' should mean
"left as hardware default".

Please change the patch to follow that, and not change the settings at
all - as having a way to tell mutter to get out of the way and let the
user configure their own settings is more useful than insisting on
applying a given hardcoded choice.
