I seem to have succeeded in making g-s-d honour the X settings by 
removing gsynaptics and pointing-device-settings. They aren't useful 
for me anyway, because they insist that the third mouse button (used 
for pasting) is simulated by tapping with three fingers, while I find 
the previous (pre-synaptics) X default of having the third mouse 
button on TapButton2 much more convenient (I paste much more 
frequently than invoking context menus).

Unfortunately, upon resume from suspend, g-s-d resets the touchpad 
settings, losing any tap or scroll functions :(  Changing settings via 
synclient works, but has to be done after each resume.

Can't it just stay off the touchpad unless there is an explicit 
request to set something?
