  eGalax touchscreen configured as tablet

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: xserver-xorg-input-evdev

  from Xorg.0.log: (II) "eGalax Inc. Touch": Configuring as tablet
  The touchscreen is a 7" resistive vga monitor.

  Every touch makes the cursor move to the upper left corner and register the click there.
  My calibration values, coming from an ubuntu  8.10 installation using evtouch, are loaded through a udev rule. Changing them or using no values at all for calibration does not change anything.

  If I install the eGalax driver (http://home.eeti.com.tw/web20/eGalaxTouchDriver/linuxDriver.htm), the device is listed twice in "xinput list" and if I disable the device using evdev, I can calibrate the screen using the eGalax tool and everythings works. If I don't disable the device using evdev, everything works too, except that every touch is preceded by a touch to the upper left corner.
  But I'd rather get it working using only evdev.
