The next time you restart your computer, instead of doing the gpointing settings fix right away, try doing this in a terminal first and see if the problem goes away.
If that doesn't work, try this next in the terminal
synclient MaxTapTime=0 synclient MaxTapTime=50
That 'MaxTapTime' value is the only thing I see changing when I check/uncheck the gpointing box in the synclient settings from the terminal.
