IOGEAR DVI KVM Problem?

I have been using a IOGEAR DVI 4-port 'KVMP switch'  for a while now.
It has an irritating problem, and I am wondering if it is defective,
if anyone has similar trouble, or is it  just the nature of the beast.

Three desktops (All XP SP3),  use the following DVI video cards:
1) RADEON X300 SE 128MB set at 1024x768 pixels.
2) NVIDIA GeForce 9300 GE  512MB  set at 1360X765 pixels.
3) VISIONTEK RADEON 9250 AGP 128 MB 1024x768 pixels.

All boot up correctly at the above resolutions.

When I use the KVM to switch back and forth, the second and third
machines quite often forget the display setting in favor a totally
useless 640X480.  On top of that, the boot setting is no longer
selectable.  Which means I guess that the system is no longer using my
video card (yes I tried reloading its driver).  Re-boot of that
desktop is required to fix things which it always does.

Anyone?
