I'm finding the touch screen on the official display to be very unreliable.
I'm reading and parsing the events from the touchscreen via /dev/input/events2 (events0 and events1) are associated with the USB keyboard I have attached to the PI.
it seems the touch screen hardware regualrly locks up in some way and stops generating event. I've also seen the cursor in Xwidows freeze. So far the only way I've found to restore correct operation if to power cycle the PI. Unloading and reloading the kernal module has no effect.
Has anyone else seen this behaviour or have I got a faulty interface ?
