Since recently, whenever I close a tab in Chrome with triple-tap my cursor is locked and the touchpad becomes unresponsive, until I triple-tap again. This is not default/expected behaviour.

Additional info:
* libinput - 1.2.3-1
* conf:

Section "InputClass"
Identifier "MyTouchpad"
MatchIsTouchpad "on"
Driver "libinput"
Option "Tapping" "on"
Option "Tap-to-click" "on"

Steps to reproduce:

1. Triple-tap
2. touchpad locks
3. triple-tap again
4. touchpad recovers
This task depends upon

Do you mean "triple tap" by "three finger tap"? Tapping the touchpad three times or using three fingers to tap the touchpad once?

There is no problem for me with three finger tap. My /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/30-touchpad.conf is below.
Section "InputClass"
Identifier "MyTouchpad"
MatchIsTouchpad "on"
Driver "libinput"
Option "Tapping" "on"

There is no need for option "Tap-to-click". See if this fix your problem.

If this doesn't fix your problem, maybe there is something about "palm detection" to prevent touchpad movement during typing.
