WinTab? My old little friend WinTab. ;>

I dunno Gimp, but MS Windows needs a better WinTab (at least NT). I
complained to Wacom about being unable to turn off and on my tablet, and
they told me it was a MS Windows problem. I tried with the NT services
thing, and there was not way, it did nothing (at least nothing broke either).

XFree allows it, if you do not need the tablet, you can turn it off. Only
must be on when launching X, then you can play with the switch as much as
you want. [For the record, so if problem arises it is answered already.]
