After upgrading to 2.6.32, my system does not recognize the trackpoint correctly.
In <= 2.6.31 the output of a lshal was "TPPS/2 IBM TrackPoint" now it is identified as "PS/2 Generic Mouse" which causes wrong behaviors with my hal policies.

Another issue (also reported by others) is that the speed and sensitivity cannot be set.
