xf86-input-synaptics: wrong edges autodetection

I guess that the edges of my "AlpsPS/2 ALPS GlidePoint" touchpad are not 
correctly autodetected, thus vertical scrolling cannot be used (it turns out 
that only a very tight area close to the right edge can be used for 

My laptop is a sony vaio FZ39VN. I am using xserver 1.6.1, input-synaptics 
1.1.0, kernel 2.6.30-rc2 (the same with previous kernel versions), no Input 
section in xorg.conf and a simple hal rule:

<match key="info.capabilities" contains="input.touchpad">
        <merge key="input.x11_driver" type="string">synaptics</merge>

Find attached xorg.log and the output of xinput list-props.

Running "xinput set-int-prop 5 226 32 120 830 120 650" (or writing an 
equivalent hal rule) makes vertical scrolling work in a usable way.

My question is: could it be possible to correct the edges autodetection, so 
that I can get rid of hal rules or xinput commands?

Many thanks in advance,
