[ltp] Synaptics touchpad: disable hardware buttons

I've recently 'upgraded' myself from an X60 to the mighty T61p with
WUXGA screen (too pity it's not FlexView, but good enough).

As I'm a heavy trackpoint user, I found it useful to configure  the
whole touchpad area for vertical scrolling. Good. But I keep
accidentally pressing touchpad's hardware left or right buttons  -
they're too close to the laptop's edge.

Is there any way to disable the hardware buttons on a Synaptics

Googling reveals only one similar question from Fedora 10 user - no
