yep, completely unscientific analysis and fix but, same
situation here :)  i've found that it takes a few seconds
for the electrons to switch between two machines and, once
i actually do the keyboard switch, if i wait about 
5.2371 seconds, then i can usually start moving the mouse
without having things freeze up on me.  so, i'm being
sarcastic but, it IS true that just waiting several
seconds before moving the mouse typically reduces the
chance of a freeze up.
