This happens anytime the keyboard goes away, for any reason.
It doesn't impair the operation of the system any, but it will occur
regardless of the reason, whether via switch, unplugging the
keyboard, or switching out of a virtual machine.
I've been meaning to try a Raritan extender with multiple terminals
( extended mice, keyboards, and monitors ) just to see what it does
under that scenario, but haven't gotten around to it.
It's my opinion that this is an anomily that won't be seen by the
majority of us, and something that can be delt with sometime
after release 1.0.
You go slow, be gentle. It's no one-way street -- you know how you
feel and that's all. It's how the girl feels too. Don't press. If
the girl feels anything for you at all, you'll know.
