Hi Jon,
I am using 0.48.2 on windows with a Wacom 4 small tablet using the mouse
and pen devices.
- Not using pressure sensitivity but tablet working for me.
- With pressure sensitivity on - I get an occasional blip of a wider
brush - else pressure changes are not visible.
- Inkscape does not detect change from mouse to pen to eraser.
- Input devices area does not show/register axes etc as I imagine it

Alas I cannot compile C.
Happy to help out with testing and screwup my system trying to improve
matters. I believe strongly in Inkscape and would like the tablet to be
fully supported.
Thanks for your support Mark :-)
