Did you actually try it with another GTK+ application that has support
for XInput devices? It is not surprising that applications that don't
enable input devices are not affected.

For a long time, nothing has changed in GIMP with respect to XInput
devices. So the fact that an upgrade introduced this problem seems to be
a strong indication that the problem is elsewhere. Perhaps in the X
server or, more likely, in the wacom driver. Of course there might also
be something that GIMP does wrong. But the vast majority of GIMP users
with a tablet doesn't seem to be affected by this problem.
As I said already, someone who is affected by this problem will have to
track it down. It is not reproducible for me and, as it seems, for no
other GIMP developer.
