The bug is just four months old. Openmoko thinks you should not switch
to landscape stay upright! ;-)

I suspect the offset to be 160pixel (i.e. 640x480). It works on the
Neo1973(GTA01), thus it is most likely an xglamo issue.

A nice thing to do is to switch on the mouse cursor so that you know
where the Xserver thinks you clicked.

In /etc/matchbox/session set SHOWCURSOR="yes"
and in /etc/X11/Xserver look for the entry for GTA02 and remove the
-hide-cursor switch.
