    1 I've experienced this as well. I have a Mint 17 host running a Ubuntu 14.04 guest, with 3D acceleration enabled. I use 4G of RAM and max out the video RAM, 128M. I installed from the installer `virtualbox-5.0_5.0.18-106667~Ubuntu~trusty_amd64.deb`.

    33This was running fine on 5.0.16 (except for the longstanding 3D acceleration bug that causes crashes and prevents two 3D-enabled guests running in parallel) so I was very much looking forward to the Guest Utils changes that went into 5.0.17. Unfortunately the mouse offset bug made it difficult to use the machine, so I re-installed 5.0.16 (had to uninstall in Mint to do so).

    5 As it happens I was having some high CPU usage issues in the guest during the transition (a particular website that causes Firefox's CPU usage to skyrocket) and my very-non-scientific-test was that they were somewhat worse in 5.0.18, and my poor ultrabook was reaching 70 deg Celcius temperatures and hard-crashing.
