No movement starting from below softbutton RBT-value

Dear all,

I am testing synaptics driver 1.8 on a Lenovo Thinkpad T440s using 
openSUSE 13.1 and kernel 3.11 (without min-max fixes for this Clickpad 
so far). Thanks a lot for making the Clickpads usable!

This is part of my 50-synaptics.conf:
# This option enables the bottom right corner to be a right button on 
# and the right and middle top areas to be right / middle buttons on 
# with a top button area.
# This option is only interpreted by clickpads.
Section "InputClass"
         Identifier "Default clickpad buttons"
         MatchDriver "synaptics"
         Option "SoftButtonAreas" "3068 0 4326 0 0 0 0 0"
	#                        ~50%    ~82%

I have the problem that there is *no cursor motion* at all initiated 
from the bottom part (looks like for Y > RBT=4326, but any X) of the 
clickpad at all, i.e., not confined to the defined softbuttonarea!
This seems like a bug...?

Also, as a related question, is there a way to *allow* movement to start 
in defined softbuttonareas?

Thanks for your help,
Joschi Brauchle
