i love the effort people are putting in to helping this trackpad issue, but shame on DELL for releasing such a useless piece of trash into the wild, i mean, how does a trackpad like this get past product testing? it's TERRIBLE.
i had a 7mm strip of plaster (or 'band-aid' for you americans) across the bottom, worked alright but i lost out on the middle of the pad. gonna put electrical tape on like diagonals later, fingers crossed

Best solution is to install the mini 10 trackpad in it's place.
Takes a bit of hacking, but not too expensive and much better results than tape.
Here's the guide I used to order the right parts and do the swap-
