Yep! If it did not it would already be in bugzilla. :-)

Nope, 2 year old 1.7 gig athlon on an asus board.

I suppose it is worth a shot, although looking in bugzilla the suggested
fix is psmouse.proto=bare, which will kill the wheel. Not much better IMO.

The problem for me is there is no way to know what kind of kvm to buy. Even
one that works today might be borked tomorrow. This switch is about 3 years
old and until now has worked flawlessly. I wish I had a good solution for
this. :-(
