I have a couple of computers hooked together through a Belkin OmniView
switchbox so I only need one mouse/keyboard/monitor.  Right now, I have my
PC and my thinkpad hooked up to it (although the thinkpad has its own mouse
because of the way it handles the external mouse/keyboard).

When the PC first boots (and is selected on the switch box) everything works
fine.  After I switch to the thinkpad and back then the mouse slows down
considerable (ithe point moves at about half speed).  NOTE: the only computer
that is hooked to the mouse port on the switch box is the PC.

I am using -current from 6/1/97 although it also failed with a kernel from
about two weeks ago.  I think it worked before then but I won't swear to it.

Anyone ever seen this or know how to fix it??
