Bug Description

Tested and confirmed on both intuos 3 and intuos 4 on ubuntu 10.04 32 and 64 bit. Using version 1:0.10.5-0ubuntu4 of this package.

Steps to reproduce:

xsetwacom set 'Wacom Intuos3 4x5 pad' Button4 "CORE KEY CTRL z"

This correctly sets the button, and the key combination works as expected.

Now if you want to find what that button is set to,

xsetwacom get 'Wacom Intuos3 4x5 pad' Button4

returns the number 4 instead of the key combination.
This functionality is different than in ubuntu 9.10 and earlier, where it returned the key combination from the set line, "CORE KEY CTRL z".

This bug is important because it affects the functionality of programs that rely on xsetwacom as a backend, such as this tablet control panel I am maintaining.
e.g. http://gtk-apps.org/content/show.php/Wacom+Control+Panel?content=104309

There's been a bunch of xsetwacom fixes recently; could you boot a livecd and verify things are working properly right now?
