I think I may have found a solution! Turning off all the keyboard shortcuts on the Typing tab (and possibly a few others) seems to have prevented this happening... I have not tried it for very long but everything seems strangely reliable at the moment.
Hopefully this might work for you!
Thanks for stopping by and reporting your issues as well; yes, it is particularly annoying to have text wiped out. But, very good if you found a "solution" . . . however, I would still call that a "work-around" rather than a "solution." And, not having keyboard shortcuts might even be more "debilitating" to the regular function of a computer than the un-doing of "tap to click" that has "worked" for me . . . but perhaps not quite has rough as completely turning off the touchpad . . . .
