OK, thanks.

File this under "well, whatever" anyway. After tearing down the 
connections and plugging the box in (a) to another mouse and then 
(b) back to the KVM, the symptoms have (a) gone away and (b) stayed 
away. It was probably a bad reaction to the KVM, or maybe some of 
the cabling's going bad, but I couldn't get the problem to recur. If 
it ever does, I'll probably just remove this platform to a location 
where space constraints don't dictate a shared head.
