Hm, I cannot say anything about two mice but I can confirm that generating
events with two input devices works fine in the gdisp_shell.

Although I write with my left hand, i'm used to have the mouse right
of the keyboard, so my left hand is free for the tablet :)

I have the mouse configured to generate core events and my wacom
tablet _not_ generating core events and set to "window" mode.

hope this helps a bit...
