Just downgrading gnome-shell with the dependencies didn't help, but
downgrading mutter and some related packages with gnome-shell solved
the problem. Right now I have the following versions of those packages,
everything else is on Debian unstable:

ii  gdm3                                    3.21.90-1                amd64      
              GNOME Display Manager
ii  gir1.2-gdm-1.0                          3.21.90-1                amd64      
              GObject introspection data for the GNOME Display Manager
ii  gir1.2-mutter-3.0:amd64                 3.21.91-2                amd64      
              GObject introspection data for Mutter
ii  gnome-session                           3.20.2-1                 all        
              GNOME Session Manager - GNOME 3 session
ii  gnome-session-bin                       3.20.2-1                 amd64      
              GNOME Session Manager - Minimal runtime
ii  gnome-session-common                    3.20.2-1                 all        
              GNOME Session Manager - common files
ii  gnome-shell                             3.21.91-2                amd64      
              graphical shell for the GNOME desktop
ii  gnome-shell-common                      3.21.91-2                all        
              common files for the GNOME graphical shell
ii  gnome-shell-extensions                  3.21.91-1                all        
              Extensions to extend functionality of GNOME Shell
ii  libgdm1                                 3.21.90-1                amd64      
              GNOME Display Manager (shared library)
ii  libmutter0i:amd64                       3.21.91-2                amd64      
              window manager library from the Mutter window manager
ii  linux-base                              4.4                      all        
              Linux image base package
ii  mutter                                  3.21.91-2                amd64      
              lightweight GTK+ window manager
ii  mutter-common                           3.21.91-2                all        
              shared files for the Mutter window manager

And gdm with gnome-shell works fine with wacom.

I also looked at the upstream git commits for mutter, but didn't find
an obvious one that causes the problem.

Is there any nice way of getting a stack backtrace when gnome-shell
launched by gdm crashes so that I can see how the call looks like and
through which library it went?
