Sorry, I wasn't clear enough.  The keyboard works fine.  The monitor
is not autodetected, so I get some low resolution, 800x600 I think.  I
also have to turn off the hardware cursor or I get an invisible mouse
pointer.  If I plug the same hardware directly into the computer when
it boots, then it gets detected fine.  The KVM switch appears to be
getting in the way somehow.
