Hmmm. I have an optimal zoom level that I'm expecting to work
from, one from which my map looks basically the same as the
scanned map that I'm using as a trace background. I can
*almost* do it with the mouse, but I keep getting that annoying
"stepping" when trying to draw a curve (it's enough of a
problem though that I just can't imagine trying to do the map
that way).

Also, does anyone know if you have to use the integrated mouse
on the tablet surface, or is the mouse just a relatively
standard mouse that works with the tablet software?
