I use a KVM switch myself but i have never had this kind of problems. tho
it's a quite "high class" KVM and perhaps it might make a difference. What
I am bit puzzled is that I don't know of any reliable way to detect a KVM
(if any!) and take appropriate actions.

<user> fajita: step one
<fajita> Whatever the problem, step one is always to look in the error log.
<user> fajita: step two
<fajita> When in danger or in doubt, step two is to scream and shout.
