I notice that you are referring to the event rather than a "more
symbolic" name such as /dev/input/wacom. Although the kernel can choose
the same event name each time it boots (or whatever), it doesn't
necessary do so, and in particular in my experience it doesn't. Use the
local rules in udev to force a symlink to the specific event. In my
/etc/udev/rules.d/10-local.rules, I have the line (one cont. line):
BUS="usb", DRIVER="wacom", KERNEL="event[0-9]*", NAME="input/%k"
and in my X config files I refer to that device name.
The above is still in the context of sarge but maybe, just maybe, it
might help. (I plan to install testing on that machine fairly soon.)
