Left handed issues

Having had my Iliad for a day now, I have found only one irritating isuue. The Wacom pen seems to be optimized for rights handed use.

When I write using my left hand with the pen tilted slightly to the left, the line of the pen is offset 2 mm to the left, making it very hard to write, however if I write with my right hand or turn the Iliad upside down. the same is not true.

I have 3 Wacom tablets, ranging from the old Artpad II to the latest Intuos III and none of them have this problem.

Have any of you clever Linux guys found any configuration data for the stylus while looking through the file system or registry?

I can't find it, but there was some discussion yesterday of a similar problem -- someone had the offset happening unless he held the stylus perpendicular to the screen.

The solution they discussed was to re-calibrate the stylus with it held in a more natural writing position -- I was searching for it 'cause I can't remember how you're supposed to do that. If I find it, I'll follow up.

edit -- Ah, I found it, but there aren't any details on recalibration, sorry 'bout that.
