This bug is still present in Jaunty and libgnomecanvas 2.26.

Unfortunately, the patch I removed from 2.20 to fix it is no longer present in 2.26. It looks like the libgnomecanvas people made the situation worse and incorporated the bug upstream.

The symptom is that what is drawn lags substantially behind the stylus, so much so that curved lines become joined line segments. It gets worse as you move to the bottom of the screen. It's more noticeable in portrait mode. Also, the effect is substantially worse than in Hardy. Xournal is basically unusable under Jaunty, unless you write REALLY slowly.
