I may have a clue: I found that if I boot with
then I don't have the problem.. if I set it to "NO", I do. I'd be
interested to know if this has the same effect on other people having
similar keyboard-loss problems.
It makes some sense that the mouse could be the problem in my (KVM
switch) case, but I can't see how that would affect PS/2 keyboards
without a KVM switch. I don't know how they interact though.
