I found the solution to my problem. Uninstall gpointing-device-settings and install gsynaptics with the following command...
rpm -Uvh --oldpackage ftp://mirrors.kernel.org/fedora/releases/11/Everything/i386/os/Packages/gsynaptics-0.9.16-1.fc11.i586.rpm
Then add gpointing* and gsynaptics* to the exclude list in /etc/yum.conf...
Finally, disable the touchpad in System > Preferences > Touchpad.
EDIT: Bug report filed... https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=528485
Fedora 19 Gnome on a ThinkPad X220, i5-2540M CPU, Intel HD Graphics 3000, Intel N 6205 wireless, and Sierra Wireless 754S Mobile Hotspot (AT&T)
