That was it.  Now it has other problems.  It works for a while then the
buttons stop working not only on the pen but also the mouse.  The cursor
still moves.  Eventually, gimp dies and an X error is reported:
The error was 'BadDevice, invalid or uninitialized input device'.
I think it worked better when it thought it was just a mouse.
Now I get to figure out if it's a gimp problem, a gtk+ problem,
an xorg problem or a linuxwacom problem.
