Bug description:
  Binary package hint: inkscape

  I am using inkscape 0.48 with a wacom pen & touch (CTH-460/k)

  I have been using this combination before and everything was working
  fine, but - probably - since the upgrade to natty pressure sensitivity
  does not work any more, whereas it is working fine, e.g. in the gimp.

  I have double- and triple-checked the settings. The tablet is
  recognised and everything is enabled and set to "screen". Yet, no joy.

  I'd like to work with this again, as this is a productive envrionment...
