Good day Michael,

Yes it happens when I try to click-drag the window.  It will go black 
and can not recover (Unity or cinnamon).  I have to cold boot to get 
back to a screen.  Also the guest is really sluggish (even my typing 
outruns the terminal and I can't type more than 80 wpm), like it was 
running in software rendering but it states that chromium and humper are 
in fact being used.

I had not had a need to run the logs in a long time so I guest the sed 
that dkms entered could have been there for some time but it was the 
first time I had seen it.  I also looked over the xorg log and did not 
find anything that stood out as an warning/error.  It all looks good but 
just does not work properly at all.
