Wacom Bamboo + USB KVM switch on FC8?

I got the Wacom Bamboo tablet working nicely on Fedora Core 8. I'm glad to see it's supported! However, I have two machines at work (the other is a Windows XP box used for software testing). I currently use a PS2 KVM switch to share the monitor/keyboard/mouse between them, and I'd like to get a USB KVM so I can use the tablet as a mouse on both machines.

Can anyone recommend a USB switch that works with Core 8, Windows XP, and the Wacom Bamboo tablet? I tried the "Gigaware USB A/B Switch", but that one doesn't work. Both Windows and Linux drop the tablet when I hit the switch, and don't pick it up again when I switch back. I plan to order another USB KVM, so if anyone knows one that works with the Bamboo, I'd appreciate a recommendation.

Extra points for a switch that takes VGA inputs, as I have a bit of an old monitor...

This may be of use but I don't have a tablet to try it with. I have a "IOGEAR MiniView Micro USB Plus" 2-port KVM switch with built in cables and audio support between Windows and Fedora 8.

I use a Microsoft wireless keyboard and mouse with it by plugging the wireless receiver dongle into the KVM usb port.
