Actually, when you run *any* X program you will get those.  Check
~/.xsession-errors for a lot more. ;)

They show up because the X configuration file has entries to support
graphics tablets included by default.  This is good for people who have
such a tablet because it will "just work."

The errors are harmless and can simply be ignored.  This is probably the
best plan.  However, if you /really/ feel strongly about it edit
/etc/X11/xorg.conf and remove the additional input device definitions.
