You should get lines like 
⎜   ↳ Wacom Bamboo 4x5 Pen eraser             id=8 [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ Wacom Bamboo 4x5 Pen                    id=9 [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ Wacom Bamboo 4x5 Finger pad             id=10 [slave  pointer
⎜   ↳ Wacom Bamboo 4x5 Finger                 id=11 [slave  pointer

So it looks like a udev or X issue.

Just on the offchance, have you forgotten to install the
xserver-xorg-input-wacom package? The tablet won’t work without it.
