Comment 36 for bug 334800

In answer to #1, here is the order of events:

1) I open the Input dialog box. It looks like this, before I change
anything:

2) Then, I change the device, by selecting the one option available from
the drop-down list. When I release the mouse button, the screen changes to
this:

I changed Disabled to Screen, clicked Save, quit Inkscape, and am uploading
the preferences.xml file. It created a new group node; most characters are
the same, but some do appear to be random or different.

Additional data:

When attempting to use the drawing tablet (with, say, Calligraphy), the
status bar does actually change to: "*Drawing* a calligraphic stroke", even
though nothing is drawn.
