Default xorg input device hotplug - wacom issue?

hi guys,

does anyone know what's the current status of xorg input device hotplug
in etch, or in debian in general?


quite frequently, i forget connecting my wacom tablet to my notebook.
xorg starts fine. when i connect the tablet then, it gets recognized, i
can control the mouse using the stylus, but the procedure for setting
the tablet properties (absolute/relative mode, changing the button
mapping, ...) through the xsetwacom program doesn't work.


i am getting
X Error: 157 BadDevice, invalid or uninitialized input device
Error (5): WacomConfigOpenDevice: Failed to open device
Set: Failed to open device 'stylus'

relevant part of the xorg.log
(**) Option "Device" "/dev/input/wacom"
(EE) xf86OpenSerial: Cannot open device /dev/input/wacom
No such file or directory.
Error opening /dev/input/wacom : Invalid argument
(EE) xf86OpenSerial: Cannot open device /dev/input/wacom
No such file or directory.
Error opening /dev/input/wacom : Invalid argument
shows the expected result - the wacom indeed wasn't present at that time...

it seems that the wacom is (when connected later) recognized as a mouse,
but the special functionalities are missing...


any hints? thanks!

best,
