[SRU] Intuos3 Wacom buttons cause mouse to move to upper left corner and click.
Since upgrading to Lucid, the buttons both for wacom intous 3 and intous 4 don't work, and cause the cursor to jump to the top-left corner of the screen. I can't change this behavior with xsetwacom. Even he scroll wheel/scroll pad does the same thing. As a result, all buttons/scrolling utilities are rendered unusable.
A newer release of the program fixes the problems that were present. Please consider this as an SRU for Lucid as this bug renders much of a tablet's features useless. The site with the changelog:

"The pad cannot be in absolute mode as it sends the axis values to the
server. Since the pad never gets x/y coordinates from the tablet the server
will fill in the defaults (0/0) for it - even if first_valuator is always >
1. This results in the pointer being reset to the screen origin each time
the pad's scroll strip is used."
