Info button doesn't work for widgets in Dashboard and Dashcode (Snow Leopard) - VERY URGENT Answered

I have a MacBook Pro running Snow Leopard and on my user account (admin) only, the info button (the little "i" that takes you to the back of a widget) doesn't function in widgets in Dashboard and Dashcode.  I have tried deleting the preference files for Dashboard, but to no avail.  I have also tried reinstalling Dashboard (not the whole OS, just the application) from the disc, but that didn't work either.  The info button works on all the other accounts, but not mine, so can't be a system-wide problem.

Does any one have any idea what the problem could be and how I could solve it?

 I've found the solution!

I use a Wacom tablet, and somehow the preferences were messing with Dashboard.  I deleted the Ink preferences and Dashboard works again!

Very odd.
