I just tried out evtest, and I did not see any output as you described.
Here is a sample:

Event: time 1388718776.222104, -------------- SYN_REPORT ------------
Event: time 1388718776.238118, type 2 (EV_REL), code 0 (REL_X), value -4
Event: time 1388718776.238123, -------------- SYN_REPORT ------------
Event: time 1388718776.246095, type 2 (EV_REL), code 0 (REL_X), value -2
Event: time 1388718776.246100, -------------- SYN_REPORT ------------
Event: time 1388718776.262116, type 2 (EV_REL), code 0 (REL_X), value -2
Event: time 1388718776.262121, -------------- SYN_REPORT ------------

So it seems that I need to start looking at the Linux drivers next then.
 Can you point me in the right direction for where I should look next?
