xev trace while trying to right click by holding two fingers on the touchpad and pressing the button

I recently upgraded to X.Org X Server 1.15.1, and I believe that this update has brought a slight regression in the synaptics driver right click emulation.

The right click is usually achieved by holding 2 fingers on the touchpad and then clicking on the button, however, on the gnome settings application and most of the applications, the right click detection is erratic (worst about 1 out of 10 times).

I will attach simultaneous traces of xev and evemu-record while trying to right-click.
