xf86-input-synaptics does not recognize three fingers gestures (only tapping). I. e. tapping and moving three fingers only results in "button 3", not "button 8/9", which are required for back/forward functions in web browsers.

Additional info:
xf86-input-synaptics 1.5.0-1

My touchpad (after installing psmouse-elantech patch):

Steps to reproduce:

Status? Current xf86-input-synaptics should be much improved in this regard.
