Note: This information is relevant for early production XO-1 units with ALPS touchpads, identified as "CL1" during early boot.

Occasionally, a laptop's touchpad will behave abnormally. This behavior includes the pointer jumping to a corner of the screen, or moving wildly. On current software (release 8.2 or better, consider upgrading!), the touchpad will be automatically recalibrated when this happens. You should hold your fingers away from the touchpad when this happens. Later Touchpad driver changes further reduce this problem.

A recalibration of the touchpad can be manually invoked using the "four-finger salute" (Escape + Frame + Right Arrow + Fn, with Fn pressed last). Work-arounds in extreme cases include using a common USB mouse with the laptop.
