Keyboard, how quaint!

Anyone know how to get GIMP 2.4.5 to understand the eraser on my Wacom Graphire 3 tablet (under Windows)?  It can see the tip end just fine, and registers the pressure levels on both the tip and the eraser, but the eraser just draws same as the tip, it doesn't erase.

Gimp may just not have the concept of a different tooltype being selected by the hardware itself. In Linux, the graphics tablet is handled by the XWindows drivers, which certainly lack that concept.

I believe the system sees the eraser as another button, so there should be some way to assign the eraser tool to activate whenever that button is used. Unfortunately, all the instructions I seem to find are for Linux, nothing on how to configure it under Windows.
