Aha!

If the device name appears to be changing between runs, this looks like a bug in the drivers or GTK where random data is coming in.

The current fixes should help with a work-around, but a little more is needed. There is some additional data that can be used to identify different parts of a compound device (e.g. one with an eraser and/or puck).

We should also look into splitting up these different "fails on Windows" tablet bugs, as they do now seem to be different issues. This "mangled name" issue is different than some others.
