I was thinking the threshold would be much smaller than 3-4 cm, more like 1
cm. However I don't actually have a trackpad that works this way so I
really am not one to guess what would work.

Have you seen similar behaviour on Windows or Mac and can you experiment to
see what they did? I would not be suprised if they break Inkscape in the
same way, however.
