It's been talked about I think both in this list and in the wacom user list.

Have you tried GTK-s all the way to the latest?. Your issue isn't common. The
bug reprt is first Ive heard about it and I myself dont see this. I'm using
very mutch up to date GTK and its mostly usable with very problematic cotchas.
Known issues sofar are:
1) non-extended devices stop interacting with canvas on random starts if an
extended device is present.
2) some dialogs and elements in the UI ignore extended device input.

Since I cant say its a common issue you could perhaps try upgrading your
tablet drivers and then trying out latest GTK and gimp 2.7.
