[SOLVED] Slow/sluggish touchpad buttons response (sometimes)

Hi all,
I have had this problem for some months now but have never looked into it, even if it is pretty annoying.

Sometimes (say one boot every three) the touchpad buttons of my laptop (see sig) behave strangely. Their response time is very long, I have to keep them pressed for ~half a second to make them trigger correctly.
This is very annoying when editing texts (selection a section of text with the touchpad) and using any click intensive application (ie editing a presentation with Prezi).

I use KDE and the only touchpad configuration I've ever done has been done via synaptiks.
I cannot tell after what update this started, it was too long ago unfortunately.

Since this happens only sometimes I don't even know where to start looking!

EDIT: I stress the fact that this happens with buttons, not with tapping

Just FYI,
this one solved itself some months ago after some kind of update.

I am glad it is solved.   I am going to close this old thread.
