keyboard problem with linksys kvm (KVM2KIT)

This is a longshot, but I doubt I'm the first person to run into this

I have a linksys kvm

The keyboard misbehaves if I use a PS2-to-USB adapter to connect it to
my laptop or desktop machine. I've tried a different keyboard, too.

Letters come through as expected, but the kbd acts as though the
windows key is stuck on (pressing "L" will lock the screen, for
example). The arrow keys stay on after being pressed. The laptop's
builtin keyboard also misbehaves while the external keyboard is plugged

Why don't the kvm and the PS2-to-USB adapter play nice?
