[PC-BSD Testing] kvm causes mouse to lockup

All,
Re-installed PCBSD-9.0, with ACPI enabled switching back and forth between computers using the KVM switch works fine.
Also, I noted that if I tried to boot with ACPI disabled (from the boot menu) the boot process "crashes". I will (hand) write the error message and pass it along. If this is not the right forum, please let me know. Thanks.

The snapshot install went smoothly. Windows was preserved but Gag was overwritten (not a problem). My PC is connected to a KVM switch. When I switch away then back the mouse is unresponsive; however the keyboard still works. I booted with ACPI disabled - same result. I tried LXDE, same result. Read through section 12.17 of the handbook and incorporated the suggested changes, including disabling acpi altogether. Attached is my dmesg result. Let me know if there is anything else I need to provide.
