An old GTK+ bug, sadly, affecting all GTK+ applications that use pressure, including GIMP.

Duplicate of bug #14169

I'm currently using a wacom bamboo pen on a thinkpad laptop; if I disconnect the tablet, mypaint will crash. It is not immediate.

The program 'mypaint' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'XI_BadDevice (invalid Device parameter)'.
(Details: serial 2002507 error_code 163 request_code 144 minor_code 30)
(Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)
