I noticed that sometimes the pinboard and backdrop do no load, when this happens the wacom usually will not work but sometimes it does work. I ran wacdump -f tpc /dev/ttyS0 to try to locate the problem and as soon as i did this the wacom worked again. The problem with the pinboard and backdrop are not related to the xorg.conf, i've seen this happen on a few other machines while testing Lucid puppy. I've not found the culprit yet, but i suspect it to be timing related.
I don't have gesture's working quite yet, but it is very much usable as is.
