is the pupeteer that enables the QtC Quick designer.

We all know, but none wants to step in, i can guess the reason. Digia
stepped in and provided some patches patch, but a hack is not a
solution.

I have never touched a Wacom, nor I know how to use one, but when
tracing the bug, i just installed the Wacom driver in my Windows
Laptop, and voila, instant bugs in QtC Quick designer, the qmlpuppet
and our apps.

But i could help trace more into the issue, what hardware, driver and
general setup is yours?
