	I made that "cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log|most" and started slogging. 
Other than the two lines below, I see nothing that even might be 
enlightening.

(II) VESA(0): VESA VBE OEM: VIA K8M890CE

(II) <default pointer>: Setting mouse protocol to "ExplorerPS/2" (It's 
actually a USB mouse, currently behind a MiniView G-CSIO4U KVM switch.)
	=====		=====		=====

	Btw, I *run* machines behind the KVM switch; but I *install* OSs, 
one machine at a time, with the machine pulled out from behind the switch 
and connected directly to the peripherals.

Remember I know precious little of what I am talking about.
