Wacom Tablet not working with mouse integration

I have a Wacom Intuos3 tablet which I use as a USB device in the guest OS

With the wacom module loaded in Linux and with XP as guest OS it won't load the tablet.

Failed to create a proxy device for the USB device. (Error: VERR_READ_ERROR).

Result Code: 
IConsole {d5a1cbda-f5d7-4824-9afe-d640c94c7dcf}

If i rmmod the wacom module I can enable the tablet in guest. With mouse integration enabled only left/right click and scroll is working, if I disable the mouse integration the tablet works as expected.

Known problem. The VirtualBox Guest Additions mouse driver reads the absolute mouse coordinates from the host and disables the guest mouse cursor. Therefore there is only one mouse cursor (the one from the host) as long as mouse integration is enabled. I fear this cannot be fixed because we cannot allow the guest to set the position of the host mouse cursor.
