This one should be fixed now

Yes i thought about it. Shortly after i wrote the parsing code i do know.
The only reason why I still use the big list of parsing rules just to get the 
vendor and Tablet / input device names is, that I couldn't get it to work with 
libsolid for any usecase. So I decided in the first step I'm actually happy 
that this way is working and as soon the basics work for everyone, I#ll go and 
dig deeper into how I could solve the tablet detection / hotplugging via solid 
and change all of it afterwards.

In case this is a dealbreaker to get my program out of kdereview and somewhere 
in kde. I'll put it back to playground for a while.

(To be honest, right now I'm just happy I get some response about the code 
itself :) Nice to see the flaws I did over the past months, beside the fact 
that it sometimes just not worked as expected ;)
