Yes, I have had this problem for a while now also.

I have sent mail to current@ a while ago.

	Hi all,
	     
	I am switching between several OS's with a Cybex KVW switch.
	     
	I now seem to have a problem with my mouse (after build world/kernel).
	     
	FreeBSD 5.1-CURRENT #2: Wed Aug 20 13:28:54 CST 2003
	     
	I am getting these messages on the console when I move my mouse, the cursor moves in a very
	choppy motion (painfully slow).
	    
	Oct  1 09:46:17 squirm kernel: psmintr: out of sync (0000 != 0008).
	Oct  1 09:46:17 squirm kernel: psmintr: discard a byte (1).

	Oct  1 09:46:20 squirm kernel: psmintr: out of sync (0000 != 0008).
	    
	moused is running with the following:
	    
	"moused -p /dev/psm0 -t auto"
	    
	The mouse is a Microsoft IntelliMouse connected to the KVM via a USB->PS/2 adapter.
	    
	If I boot the same machine into -STABLE this does *not* happen.
	    
	I have tryed running moused with different protocols without any luck.
	    
	Can anyone help me solve this problem ?
	    
	I have to run -STABLE if I can't solve this problem, so any help would be appreciated.
	    
	Thanks

	p.s the mouse works fine with: FreeBSD -STABLE, RH Linux, Irix 6.5.20, Tru64, and WinXP.
