Tiresome, isn't it?
Myself and at least one other user have reported this problem, but have
had no responses from the gurus. I guess it's a 'feature' of Inkscape!
I don't remember see this on the Inkscape Devel List.
So, I'm sending this to there.
Just so you know the user list is good but for issues like this the
devel list is easier to get responses from the developlers as they
watch it all the time. Or filing a bug report with the tracker if it
hasn't been done, most bugs get looked at during the release cycle.
As to this bug i think this maybe a GTK bug as Synfig has the similar
issue of not being able to use the mouse for input when input from a
tablet is turned on. Or maybe we not setting it up right who knows.
Thanks for the report,
