Okay, now that I've actually gotten 1.3.7 built successfully, I can finally
try it out :-)

bad news... same bug.

And yes, "testinput" from

works normally with the pentablet.

As I mentioned previously, I worked around this, by simply putting an
'#ifdef' around the pointer grabs in 1.2.3

If you want this 'patch', you're welcome to it, at


Apply in the app directory with **"patch -c"**, since it is a context diff.

However, I dont see it as suitable for integration into the normal code
base as-is, for multiple reasons:

1. Its a pure #ifdef. Its not integrated into configure or anything.
   And it defaults to "dont do the grab at all".

2. What criteria would you USE in configure to enable/disable this?
   I have no idea why the grab is even done in the first place, so
