xorg successfully applies the settings in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf then cheerfully changes my MinSpeed, MaxSpeed, and AccelFactor settings. All other settings work as expected.
Xorg.0.log seems to show the touchpad device (bcm5974) getting added twice (the config/udev and XINPUT lines in the log).
The first time correctly applies all the settings in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf. The second time changes Min/MaxSpeed and AccelFactor, which I don't want.
EDIT: it seems to set the speed and acceleration values no matter what even without a config file

How do I prevent my settings from being overridden?
Or would I be better off setting my settings via synclient in ~/.xinitrc? I can get the desired behaviour by using synclient after X starts but I prefer the config file if possible.

/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf:
Code:

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier      "touchpad catchall"
        Driver  "synaptics"
        MatchIsTouchpad "on"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
        Option  "HorizTwoFingerScroll"  "on"
        Option  "HorizScrollDelta"      "100"
        Option  "CoastingSpeed" "0"
        Option  "VertResolution"        "75"
        Option  "HorizResolution"       "75"
        Option  "MinSpeed"      "2.45"
        Option  "MaxSpeed"      "2.45"
        Option  "AccelFactor"   "0"
EndSection
