Thanks a million for your help.  Many thanks to Bartosz, too!  Just to
be sure I understood how to deactivate hald, I ran (as root) the

chmod -x /usr/local/etc/rc.d/hald

which should prevent it from running in the future, then, for this session

pkill hald

That should do it, right?

Also, I reported earlier that everything seems to be normal if I boot
with the tablet plugged in, but that's not always true.  I now think
that if I log in and out enough I get the same error messages.

I have enclosed my Device Section of /etc/X11/Xorg.conf below.

All the best,
