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

Tim.
