Following up on my post...I upgraded my G1G1 from 656/Q2D07 to 703/Q2D14
and updated the activities using Bert's script. I re-ran Michael's 
pen-tablet script. I still didn't see the pen-tablet feature working in
Paint, until...I applied a lot more pressure than I had anticipated. The
cursor moved! So, I guess the pen-tablet script makes it work, but the
amount of pressure needed is a lot more than what I would apply to my
Nokia 770 or 810.

Is this expected?
