Question about Wacom Intuos3 Graphic Tablet
I've got an intuos3 9x12. A weird thing happens periodically with my touch strip (the scroll pads). This seems to be a problem with my left touch strip, but I don't really use the right one so it's hard to say.
Seemingly randomly and spontaneously while being used, the touch strip often locks into a persistent scroll.
That means that with Photoshop, my image keeps zooming out, or on web pages my page keeps twitching to the bottom. It doesn't go away until I reboot my whole system. It only happens every now and again, but it's extremely annoying when it does.
If you set the scroller options to "only accept input from pen" The problem will go away and yet still function when needed.

This random auto-scrolling issue has followed me from computer to computer for years, ever since I got the Intuos 3 when new. The only solution that worked for me was unplugging and replugging the tablet.
Also, I'm on my 4th replacement mouse for this tablet. They just start clicking and double clicking at random and need to be cleaned on the bottom. Eventually I have to replace them.

Probably a simpler solution than you expected [also a baby out with the bath water] solution. But it works [for me] and I've had to use it several times.
For the PC
Fire up Start-All programs- wacom tablet - tablet preference utility - and delete ALL preferences.
Something I haven't tried yet, but have seen the option is to MOVE the preferences to another machine. If it's possible, I'd suggest making an IMMEDIATE backup of the prefs file when working, and stick them on another drive until the tablet fails. Then try and re-import those settings and see if that fixes things.
I've also found the prefs fail once I have several programs defined with their own prefs.

I had the same problem on Intuos3 A5 Wide. If you go on the Wacom website and download and install the newest drivers it should fix the problem (working for me so far, fingers crossed!)

I have this problem too and I've found that merely opening the Wacom Tablet control panel program will fix the mad scrolling issue. So I've just got like a quick launch icon for it. A quick open then close seems to (at least temporarily) keep the issue at bay.
