Bug Description

When using Gimp 2.6.11 and a Wacom Bamboo Fun tablet, the drawing line randomly jumps to the left, top, or top right corner of the screen. The cursor itself does not move, nor does this problem manifest in any other program.

The stylus, eraser, cursor, and pad are all set to Screen mode in the Device Input dialog. This error does NOT occur when set to Disabled.

The problem appears more pronounced when drawing straight vertical lines, but also occurs to a lesser extend with horizontal lines and an even lesser extent with curved lines. Attached is an image that illustrates the problem; the image shows the quick jumps while drawing circles and lines.
