> do you know what if any are the side effects of disabling the use of the
pressure information on the N800 as a result of implementing your
workaround? In other words does this break some other functionality of the
N800, or is the pressure information something that is there as a latent
"feature" but not actually used by the N800?

I'm sure Nokia folk can answer that better than I, but I think it affects
detecting whether a wide area pressure is detected (as by a finger or thumb
fleshy part) rather than a touch from a stylus or fingernail.  As I don't
use fingers directly on the screen (I really hate the grease marks) this
makes no difference to me.

> If the answer is yes, then it might be possible to write a script to
disable it when VNC functionality is needed but to be able to turn it back
on when the pressure functionality is needed.

It would be even nicer if it were a checkbox in the Text Input Settings (or
other) applet in the Control Panel...
