I suspect the problem come when someone trigger it by accident by
touching the touchpad by error with their wrist and then the focus of
windows shift, the cursor jump elsewhere, etc. 

When you have someone who can explain, this is not a big deal, but if
you don't, this is truly puzzling.

I have seen this a few times from people who did not know it existed, so
I suspect that's why gnome use this default setting.
