Check section "ServerLayout" of /etc/X11/xorg.conf

When you have more than one pointer, all except one should be described as 
AlwaysCore. Main should be (in your case alps) CorePointer. I have similar 
setup with Synaptic touchpad:

Section "ServerLayout"
        Identifier     "Default Layout"
        Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
        InputDevice    "Mouse0" "AlwaysCore"
        InputDevice    "Synaptics Mouse"  "CorePointer"
        InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection
