RE: KVM problems
I have had similar problems which I have managed to avoid by using the
button on the switch rather than the keyboard (I have a two box KVM), and
also, you want to be careful that both machines are in a stabel state before
switching (i.e, not while rebooting, defraging, downloading, etc).

Is it a PS/2 mouse? They really, really don't like being hot-plugged,
which is how I imagine at least some KVM's would work.
