  You can turn it off with an environment variable.  From the release notes:

If you don't want GEM to take control of the tablet if it finds 
one, set the environment variable GEM_NO_TABLET to the
value "1" (no quotes of course).  There will be a print out if
GEM finds the environment variable.

Later, Mark
