comment 4623:011a multitouch monitor
I got some feedback from Apple: they asked for sudo sysdiagnose output, and then for sudo dtrace -n 'fbt::*HIDPointing*:entry' output. The latter is (almost) empty, so I gave them the output from some wider HID-related dtrace patterns, like fbt:com.apple.iokit.IOHIDFamily::entry. No reply since, last post Mar 31. I wait and hope.

comment 4623:011a multitouch monitor
Following apple.stackexchange.com/a/209653/25135 and developer.apple.com/library/ios/documentation/Security/… I tried csrutil disable. Now kextutil claims to load the thing, but kextstat doesn't list it, and the device still doesn't work. Makes me wonder whether it's a kext loading issue or whether the workaround doesn't apply to my case.

comment 4623:011a multitouch monitor
Found a post which states that kext-dev-mode works for 10.10 Yosemite only, not 10.11 El Capitan. Will have to try to find some ADP member who either has a kext signing certificate or is willing to obtain one. Quite a lot of work to work around a bug!

comment 4623:011a multitouch monitor
That “kext must be signed” is a big hurdle here, since I'm unwilling to pay for ADP Enrollment just for this, and since apple.stackexchange.com/q/174146/25135 and stackoverflow.com/q/26723321/1468366 sound like self-signed certs would not be an option for kexts. I did sudo nvram boot-args='kext-dev-mode=1' and rebooted, but apparently the kext still doesn't get loaded. See gist.github.com/gagern/6d98868c75f009d641aa for my plist and my attempts to diagnose. Any ideas?

Alas, that's not it. Or at least not just this. I just got asked again, some five minutes after waking up the machine. ☹️

Thanks! I've accepted this for now, and would unaccept it if this didn't fix the issue as I expect it will. The upvote stays, since this is a useful answer in any case.

comment System asking for Apple ID login
@bjbk: That sounds very plausible. I don't know how to check whether the OS is attempting to upgrade just now. But I found that in the AppStore tab in the System Preferences I can have it save the password for free downloads. I'll see whether that does the trick for me.

comment Display unicode information
Your answer did help me in two ways. Firstly, it indicated where the information would be displayed. I got the name there but not the codes. Secondly, I noticed that you have way more symbol lists in the left part of the window. I added some more and suddenly the codes showed up. A bit of tweaking showed that enabling the Unicode list did make that info available. But the change didn't take effect immediately; I had to switch to a different symbol to see that effect. I'm on a German OS X. Do you want to include the English names for the setting I mentioned in your answer?
