Synaptics touchpad jumps on on-pad clicks
I have a Lenovo Thinkpad T490 with a Synaptics touchpad that has three buttons beneath the pad itself at the bottom and three additional distinct buttons above the pad itself. When clicking on the left-click button beneath the pad itself, the cursor often jumps to the bottom of the screen (it may happen with the other buttons, but is most noticable with the left click). I've got a reasonably short libinput record recording for it doing so. Occasionally I get a journal entry stating that the mouse has jumped and I should report a bug (which is what spurred this on), although I don't believe that happened for the libinput recording that I've attached. The device in question appears to be /dev/input/event17.
I also noticed the following lines:

But adding psmouse.synaptics_intertouch=1 to the kernel command-line caused the under-pad buttons stopped working altogether.
Please let me know if there's any additional information that would help diagnose/fix this problem... 5:)
