Touchpad notchy on new 2021 pinebook pro

I'm just beginning to play with my new Pinebook Pro.  Arrived May 2021.

The only issue I'm unhappy with is that the touchpad seems to lag on initial movement.  i.e. you move your finger then the arrow moves some time later.  It's making button pressing and resizing windows very awkward.  I currently have a mouse plugged in and this works fine.  However I would like the touchpad working for 'sofa surfing'. Smile

I've already read a lot of previous post about the issue from 2019 and 2020.  I've tried re-flashing the keyboard driver and tried some of the previous reported  'fixes'.  There may be some slight observable improvement but it's marginal.  The main issue is initial finger movement and a lag in the pointer.  Has anyone got one of the newer pinebook pros and is experiencing the same issue?

I'm running the Manjaro install that came with the laptop.  I've also tried the Debian release booted from sd card and this exhibited the same issue.

I think it maybe a driver or power management issue rather than hardware since the hardware seems to function fine other than this initial lag.

Is there a solution to this problem?  Other than that the laptop is brilliant!
