I did see this thread earlier and had meant to post but got side-tracked. Anyway, no I don't have these issues. I did when I first got my x230t but then changed the registry to inhibit it from happening along with disabling "Flicks" and the "Press and Hold for Right Click" features. Find attached a "penoff.zip" folder containing a registry file (265 bytes) attached, just run it and it'll stop the ripples in your programs but will keep the ripples on the desktop as Stoneseeker has - I also find I get the ripples when tapping in Google Chrome too.* I also get the pen not responding sometimes, to get around that I either turn the pen around to the eraser, lock the computer and login again or disable the Wacom service and then re-enable. I never use the eraser for erasing. Anyway, one odd quirk I get is the pen to register that I'm holding the left-click button and it draws in full opacity, but this very very rarely happens to me. Anyway, have a look at the .reg file and see if it helps. Also note that I'm also using CS6. *It has worked for me, but I won't be responsible if it damages your system - Open it in Notepad before running if you want to check it.
