In case people don't know, synergy (x11-misc/synergy-1.4.15) is a network and based "KVM" that allows one computer to control the keyboard/mouse of another machine as if the two machines were one... Both machines need to have monitors however.

Anyway, I have a weird issue with synergy. My "workstation" machine that I have the keyboard/mouse on I shut down frequently. I run synergyc on my "server" machine that is left on 24/7.

When I first start synergyc on my "server" and synergys on my workstation it works fine and smooth. I can shut down my workstation and restart it at a later time and restart just synergys and the existing synergyc will reconnect with it just fine.

However on that subsequent reconnect, typically the mouse movement starts getting really jerky and slow. I found that simply restarting synergyc on the server completely fixes the problem. However reaching for that keyboard to stop and restart the client I'm trying to avoid.

Anyone run into this issue before?
