However, number 3 seems possible as well since it would make sense to detect which hand at the first touch of each gesture (when there is not currently anything else touching). I reviewed the thread and have a few more thoughts...
First, I don't believe you ever indicated which hand you are using or where the pad is located in relation to that hand in this thread.
Second, when we discussed how four finger scrolling couldn't cause it, we didn't confirm what your four finger gesture for the opposite hand was set to (if they were both scroll, it could switch and may still scroll).
Third, I asked about your pinky, but technically, some people have a ring finger longer than their middle finger, and if it's even close, then my first suggestion (very early in this thread) about rotating the pad a bit might help. However, rotating the pad a bit might cause other gestures to cause the problem if it is actually related to your hand geometry.
Fourthly, I've seen a left click on a normal mouse act as a right-click, and this brings up a whole new problem I never even considered if you are using Windows. That is what I will now dub the "Sticky Keys Experience." I have experienced, ever since Windows XP, the occasional "sticking" of function keys (SHIFT, CTRL, ALT, WIN) even though the sticky keys accessibility option is disabled (or accessibility options are even uninstalled, using third party software to gut them out). I have learned to press each of the aforementioned keys on each side of the keyboard once anytime my system starts reacting erratically to mouse or keyboard inputs, and more often than not, it solves the problem. This has happened to me since WinXP on bare hardware, and seemed to happen more often when I had the TSLP. However, it also seems to happen more often with RDP sessions. I migrated our systems to RDP VDI at work, and now it happens to many of my users there. Changing keyboards doesn't help, although I have seen changing computers make it worse (at least one user swears it never happened to them until we changed computers more than a year after switching to RDP VDI).
Sadly, I suspect it would have eventually been possible to disable a hand or at least the auto hand switching feature if FingerWorks had continued on instead of being bought out, then you would be able to rule my fourth thought out by preventing the pad from causing the problem you think you're seeing.
