about Bamboo Fun tablet
Recently I have installed gimp 2.8.6 and before saying something bad about it, better I say this version look useful, in special about using Text, that tool become very great.
But about my tablet Bamboo Fun, (which is working, pressure pencil too), it behave a little different that it work in gimp 2.6.11.

Before in 2.6.11 I used one tool (from Toolbox) in my Core pointer other in my Wacom tablet pressure stylus and another in the Wacom tablet Eraser, and every time I leave de pen of the tablet and just move the pointer of the mouse, it automatically switch to the tool in the pointer mouse and if I continue using the pen of the tablet, it switch again to the other tool selected in Wacom tablet pressure stylus.

In 2.8.6 it doesn’t work in this way, instead went I am using a tool with the tablet stylus and leave it, and move the pointer it not switch to the tool in the pointer, it just freeze the actual tool and no let the pointer mouse do anything, Even Ctrl + mouse wheel scroll (zoom) doesn’t work, until I send the pointer mouse out of the canvas (work area page) and stand it over the tools or bar program. Why, I don’t know, but it become annoying, believe me.

I am using Windows 7- 64, Gimp 2.8.6, Bambo Fun: cth 661. Driver PenTablet_5.2.4-6.exe

Sorry about my bad English, I am a native Spanish speaker.

RE: about Bamboo Fun tablet
I had this happen to me too, sometimes GIMP gets confused after I use a stylus for a while and then switch to mouse, it still thinks I'm using stylus and nothing really works. Usually it resolves itself when I do something with stylus and then switch to mouse again. AFAIK GIMP developers aren't really planning on fixing tablet bugs until GIMP 3.0, so there's not much that can be done about this. Just be happy that it recognizes your tablet at all!
