[PD] Using pd with Wacom Intuos 2 in Linux

I have another trouble now.
The palette is working quite nice on my Ubuntu Hoary system but this was
only for pre-test purposes.
I now have to make it work on my Debian testing (kernel 2.6.8) system
but the [hid] object crashes with segfault eveytime I start polling on
any device (touchpad, mouse, tablet) except keyboard. Maybe the right
modules are not loaded in the system. I tried having a look in Google,
nothing turned up.
The only differences I can think of between the two machines are:
- One is Ubuntu ([hid] works well), the other is Debian testing ([hid]
- One is kernel 2.6.10 ([hid] works well), the other is 2.6.8 ([hid]
- One has USB 2 ([hid] works well), the other only has USB 1 ([hid]
- One is a desktop machine (works), the other is a laptop (crashes).
Do you have any idea where it can come from?
Tell me if you need output from anything.
