I know for certain it is a GTK issue. You may downgrading GTK in use
for mypaint(GIMP from trunk must have newer, or it wont build) to
something before 2.17.1 I think.

Things like that would ve useful in mypaint. Your input to development
of mypaint might be useful.

There already is such a set. Inkscape for vector, Gimp for
photomanipulation, MyPaint for painting. Of these, inkscape seems to
be the fastest developer, Gimp is the most mature and mypaint is
newest member of the set. There are not that many developers with
interest in digital image creation. Painting has the least amount of
interested people and it shows.

Extra problem with extended devices is the lack of such devices for
testing purposes. Right now I really like to have access to a a wacom
device that reports stylus rotation(wheel parameter, not to be
confused with tilt).
