Dell Latitude d505 touchpad problem

Hi, I installed 64studio on my dell latitude d505 today and 2 issues I found- the touchpad on the laptop moves like molasses, and the mouse preferences gui and the touchpad gui seems to have no effect. USB mouse works fine. Any idea? In the synaptic package manager, the search for synaptics touchpad brings up configuration utilities, but no driver, so I am assuming it works by default. I haven't had this issue with any other distro (linux mint was on this machine until 10:30 this morning). Issue 2- If I log out and log back in, I get an error message stating that there is already a panel running, then the 64 studio screen comes on but my gnome panel is not there. Rebooting works, but not supposed to need to do that. In spite of these little issues, and the trouble I ma having on my rackmount PC compiling ffado, I still think 64studio is the best music distro I have tried and I look forward to getting it running 100% smoothly. Thanks.
