My experiences:  1) USB to PS/2 converter has probs, use PS/2 type
mouse; 2) include the following parameter in the kernel line in grub:
psmouse.proto=imps ; and, 3) insure booting machine is selected in KVM
thru entire boot process.

Lots of KVM probs with 2.6 kernels, especially with Belkin style KVMs.
Look in bugzilla for more info, and google.
