Re: [vfio-users] VM loses mouse

Could you also check if same disconnect/reconnect happens when VM is not running? Maybe something wrong with usb hub.

I had similar problem with one KVM switch. Usually didn't have problems when I reset device with full host restart. Problems usually started when I was fiddling around with switch itself.

Yes, I'm not using Synergy either, just the built-in PS2 mouse (i.e.
not passing through any USB devices explicitly). My host is Fedora 25.
GPU is Nvidia GTX1050 but that's probably not relevant.
