For first bug report, it does sound same issue as I looked into a
while back. The kernel driver is mistakenly telling userland that the
PAD device has gone out of proximity when you use pen. From that
point, buttons don't work.
Something has changed in xf86-input-wacom that we must l trust kernel
information more then we used to. My personal preference is to fix
the kernel to give us good info instead of reverting back to old
Maybe when Ping gets back next month we can have some progress. Or
hopefully we can find a user that doesn't mind hacking kernel drivers.
I can give tons of guidance on patch to implement (its like 3 lines
for simple solution) but ultimately I can't push forward much more
since I don't have the device.
For second bug report (X server crash), I've no idea. It sounds like
its own issue.
