This does not sound as a problem with the switch, but instead something with your config. Myself I use one and behaves as any other keyboard.
Check that the font server is running ( xfs ) and if not, start it.
Also, check /var/log/XF86*.log

I tried using Red Hat 9 with an electronic A/B switch and the OS would freeze once it started loading X.
