The touchpads on the two new Acer Aspire D250 ("Aspire" - sheesh) that I
just got have throwaway plastic protective covers which have three
gestures depicted on them, including a sort of swirly thing that
apparently introduces vertical scrolling. Untested because I blew
Windows away within minutes of unpacking the things, and now talk to
them only via ssh :-)

The pictures of the gestures seem clear enough, but I have years of
experience decoding user manuals.
