>I have a CentOS 3.6 and 4.3 box sharing a kvm switch. Switching from the
4.3 box to the 3.6 and back again, the mouse stops responding. >The keyboard
works just fine, and I can ssh into the box.
>I have tried <ctl><alt><bksp> and while it does restart the x server, it
doesn't seem to affect the mouse. 

>Is there something I can run to get the mouse recognized again short of
restarting the computer?

Try adding "psmouse.proto=bare" to the kernel line in /etc/grub.conf. There
are some other protocols you could try if this one is unsuitable.
