Yes, if correction was calculated for [127; 127] range and the device
would feed [0; 4096] it would of course produce wrong results.

Any change you could locate and run "evtest" utility and post its results?

We do not want to fix only joydev as it leaves other nput handlers
(for example access through evdev) still broken. That's why I want to
figure out where [0;4096] is being changed to [-127; 127].
