I used to patch GIMP to set the max _size) 1000 because the built-in
values were really really tiny when working on 2400dpi print images. I
didn't usually need a brush bigger than quarter of an inch for what I
was doing. But I loved the logarithmic controls.

An input device preference to say, "behaves logarithmically" might work.
The edit/Input Devices dialogue has a place for a "curve" that might
work for this, although I can't test it because it says "this device has
no curve" for me even for my USB mouse which is quite rounded actually.
