I've got a Dell laptop running 9.10, plugged into a Belkin SOHO KVM switch (4-way USB & VGA). When I switch back to the laptop from the other PCs connected to it the mouse stops working. The keyboard is fine. It's only started doing this today after many weeks of trouble free use. The only way I can kick the mouse back into action is to do a CTRL-ALT-F1 then CTRL-ALT-F7 to restart X.

Any ideas how I can fix this, and why it should have suddenly started doing it when I've not changed anything?
