Description of problem:
Wacom Tablet module (wacom.o) working fine in kernel 2.4.18, 2.4.18-3,
When I use it from 2.4.18-5, I can only CLICK in X Window System, but
can not MOVE the cursor by wacom's stylus.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Connect your wacom tablet before starting the host.
2.Insmod wacom after booting procedure complete.
3.Enter X Window System, move the stylus over wacom tablet, you can
  find the cursor on screen won't move, but you can still do click

I had the same problem on 2.4.18-17 with RedHat 8.0. 
The following patch to the wacom driver appears to have fixed it for me at 
least (sorry if i am meant to quote / attach this stuff):

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
