When I make a scroll gesture on the touchpad (two fingers moving vertically or horizontally), no scroll events are generated until I move about a 1.5 centimetres, then 1.5cm worth of scroll events suddenly happen, typically scrolling a page or so. Once scroll events have begun, they are generated smoothly as I move my fingers around.

If such a delay is somehow necessary, it'd be much better if the "missed" events didn't appear all at once, but were simply forgotten. Of course best would be to generate scroll events as soon as two fingers move.
