Same problem here running ArchLinux with kernel : 4.15.3-2-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Thu Feb 15 00:13:49 UTC 2018 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Here are the lines in my system log : http://dpaste.com/2RYPNHB
Comment 2 Peter Hutterer 2018-02-20 01:31:38 UTC
Caused by the event frame in 0.347554, the reason is a disagreement on what is a touch between the main touchpad code (which handles pressure-based touch detection) and the tapping code (which only goes by touch begin events)
Comment 4 Vishal 2018-02-20 15:46:39 UTC
Can confirm the same problem. Crashing Gnome about every hour, and the same error messages show up.

    touchpad: only begin fake touches when we have at least one finger down
Comment 8 Lucas De Eiroz Rodrigues 2018-02-24 16:37:22 UTC
Peter, will you release a new libinput build version with this patch built-in? Or should Canonical apply the patch on the current one?
Comment 9 Peter Hutterer 2018-02-25 22:29:00 UTC
As a general rule, I'm not releasing for every single patchfix, even if it is a crasher on some devices. Canonical should apply the patch for their packages, but the patch will eventually land in 1.10.1 when I get to it.
