Photoshop: Extremely laggy brush, doesn't start when I place pen down, doesn't stop when I pick it up

Here is a short video of the problem:

Sometimes I can get this issue to stop by rebooting, but that isn't a sure fix.

I've reinstalled my tablet drivers several times, updated my video drivers, restarted my tablet, restarted my computer, restarted photoshop, switched USB plugs for the tablet... and none of it will work consistently. 

Its is very frustrating, since it sometimes will require multiple reboots to get it functioning properly again.  If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know.

When the issue happens, does the pen also lag in other applications ? 

If it does, does the issue happen when ONLY using those other drawing applications ? You can maybe download evaluation versions of other pen-aware programs. Which tablet are you using ?
