Is there any way to do a "long click" with synaptics?

Thanks for the reply, Peter - but this doesn't work. Playing with xev 
shows no input events are thrown at all with this gesture. Double tap = 
double click, double tap + drag = click-and-drag, and tap = click all 
work fine, as do basic motionevents of course.

The version of my xserver-xorg-input-synaptics package is 
1.2.2-2ubuntu5. I couldn't find any properties relating to this 
behaviour in the synaptics man page.
