As another unhappy cheapo Belkin KVM owner .. yeah, I'm very much dreading
the whole upgrade to FC2 because of this. Not that I switch around
consoles that much but rebooting the systems after each switch is simply
not an option.

A few days from now and eBay will be wondering what the heck struck them
as every FC user has put their Belkin KVM on sale ;)

I know it's a crappy piece of a KVM, but what makes this so annoying is
that it has been working with the switch-to-another-console-and-back
kludge and AFAIK "the other OS" does handle the situation without any
trickery so it's not technically impossible to handle.
