System ignores mouse REL events.

Bug Description

When a mouse device is captured by Pystromo, even if no remapping takes place, outputted/passed-through REL events do not seem to get processed by X.
The very first mouse motion appears to work (the mouse moves ever so slightly - once), but further motion has no effect.

The REL events are seen by Pystromo, and are successfully passed through to the `uinput` device node.
Running `cat /dev/input/mice` while Pystromo is in operation shows that the events also successfully make their way to that point.

More research is required, and hopefully a blast of inspiration.

Q. Perhaps it's being seen by X as not coming from a/the 'core pointer device'?
Q. Perhaps `xev` can shed some light on the difference?

Hello, I have done some checks on this problem using a N52te:
- I configured D-PAD with mouse axis: X takes motion into account without pystromo
- when using pystromo to send REL_event, whatever the button `xev` detects the REL event but mouse coordinates aren't updated so X consider it had to move the pointer at the same position. It seems the event.value content isn't taken into account
