I have a switch [TRENDnet, TK-200, KVM switch] that let me have one monitor,
one keyboard and one mouse and two computers connected to them.
I get these messages when one of the computers boots and the switch is

What I find odd is that it didn't happend in FreeBSD 4.x and the first time
I saw the messages was in FreeBSD 5.0
