Hi Chris,

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.
