I've used Avocent KVMs and this does not seem to be an issue with them.

Currently I have a Avocent Switchview 100 PS/2 two-port sharing the
console between FreeBSD 8.2 and OpenBSD 4.9 boxen.  No issues regarding
where the switch is pointing and which is booting.  I do not use a GUI
on either of those.
