Copied this from an earlier posting I made.

Have reports that this did resolve problems for a couple of people.

Hope you have the same results.

Have seen this problem as well on the Belkin KVMs.  

I came across this item on another list.  Have not tried it myself but
it sounds like it fixed a few peoples problems with this.


They say to put psmouse.proto=bare on the kernel command line or
proto=bare on the psmouse module command line.

There was some discussion of two other options imps and exps.  exps
apparently causes the mouse jumping problem.  imps appears to get a
mouse with a wheel working as expected.

Again I have not tried this but this may be an actual fix to this
