I solved my problem as reported in my post Jerky Mouse Movement -
Solved without resolving the Motion_Buffer issue. I believe it is a
wacom module parameter. I recall that several years ago I found it
necessary to set certain module parameters. insmod will allow you to do
this but I have forgotten the command that reports the current values of the
parameters of an installed module. I tried modinfo wacom but could not
understand the output, it is certainly different than what I remember
using in the past.
