    Well, one thing outstands: the synaptic touchpad is now really
    comfortable to use. Almost everything works, including simple and double
    clicks, and scrolling. Dragging is still broken. I must note I'm now
    using a synaptic Xinput driver, as suggested.

    The system seems much more stable in regard to suspension/resuming. The
    USB subsystem has kept working the first time I suspended and everything
    came back perfect. The second one in a row, the USB subsystem was
    halted, but doing a "modprobe -r uhci_hcd; modprobe uhci_hcd" made my
    USB periferals (keyboard and mouse) work again.

    As for the battery charging pattern, I can't say anything definitive,
    but it looks good ATM.

    No more "Ramdom Nasty Things(tm)", the clock works ok and there are no
    issues with proccess spawning.
