I've read that the Intuos2 tablet surface can be replaced after it's damaged by the pen. I've sort've neglected my Intuos3, and it might suffer some more abuse in the future. If it gets really scratched up, how do I replace the drawing surface?

Is it an Intuos3? I had the same issue (only the spot varied). The weird part was that it was caused by the scroll bars on the side being active, even though I wasn't using them. Disable them and see if it helps.
From what I read on Wacom's site, they are NOT compatible.
The Bamboo use a stylus that is different than the nib pens that the Intuos use. The stylus for the Bamboo is more like the stylus you can purchase for smart phones. The Intuos pens are pressure sensitive and have different nibs you can use for different effects and feel. You can go to their website and look for compatible pens and stylus' for your specific tablet.
Have you tried pulling the nib out (the end bit you draw with)? It could be that something is sticking the nib further inside the pen than it should, which is telling the pen you are applying pressure. As far as I know there is a little spring inside the pen that the nib pushes on when you touch the pen to the tablet. Perhaps the spring is permanently squished in.
I am giving you a link below that will tell you all you need to know about Wacom and Linux (gimp). There you can download the driver you need in order for your Intuos3 to work with GIMP. Let me know if this helps.
I had the same problem with my Intuos3 on Vista. Tech support suggested the following.
Do this.....Go to Start--->control panel---->system(in classic view)---->device manager--->click on "human interface devices"--->then click on "Wacom virtual HID driver" and right click on that and disable it. Your computer will ask you to restart and you will want to do that.
How do I restore my Intus2 grip Pen on my Wacom tablet when it stops working due to various reasons; hitting the edge of the tablet area, drawing errors, etc.? I keep having to restart program and computer to restore it. Kinda a pain when it happens continuously. I am working in CS4 on Mac OS W vrsn 10.5.6. I am having this problem working in CS4 Illustrator probably would happen in Photoshop as well. Any solutions for resetting pen without having to restart each time??
