I´m sorry, I don´t know where the "´s has gone, but I haven´t
contacted Ping Cheng, someone else does, this is a quote from someone
here http://forum.tabletpcreview.com/archive/index.php/t-3798.html.

First of all: Should I ever quote the mail I am responding to like
here?  I guess this would be a little unreadable after some time,
that´s why I am asking.

I´m glad that  I could find something useful , thanks for the
explanations =)

"Ping Cheng from the linux wacom project is aware of this and will
work on it soon,  you can see it at
http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1593330&group_id=69596&atid=525127"


Would that fit? I´m sorry, but I just never had worked with bugzilla
and don´t know if I had to take care of something by writing there..
Thanks,
Sebastian
