SubjectRe: ps/2 mouse, keyboard conflicts
Hi,

the mouse needs to be reinitialized after being replugged. First it needs to
be enabled and then set to the protocol it uses (if different from plain
PS/2). This should be handled by mouse driver, i.e. gpm and X11.
However, it isn't.
There once was a kernel patch to do the first part (it can't do the second,
asw the kernel has not the slightest clue about the specifics of the mouse),
but
* it was bad design (should be done in userspace, where knowledge baout the
specific mouse id present)
* broke some mouses (synps2 most notably)
so it got disbaled. You can try reenabling by using the parammeter
psaux-reconnect and check whether this makes a difference.

I don't have the slightest clue why it affects yoiur keyboard.

Regards,
