devd(8) hotplugging is currently partially broken. See bug 196678.
Either apply one of the attached patches, use HAL or configure manually.

Try disabling uhid(4) from attaching as it may conflict with wacom(4x).

 $ kldload usb_quirk
 $ usbconfig add_dev_quirk_vplh 0x056a 0 0 0xffff UQ_MATCH_VENDOR_ONLY
 $ usbconfig add_dev_quirk_vplh 0x056a 0 0 0xffff UQ_HID_IGNORE
 <disconnect the device>
 <connect the device>
 $ dmesg | uhid

If it helps I can add it to /usr/local/etc/rc.d/wacom
