Xorg 1.16 hangs on logout with VMWare if screen has been resized
Assigned to email@example.com
I'm using VMWare 6.04 (with Windows 8.1), and I have experienced an issue with Xorg 1.16 where terminating an X desktop session will seemingly lock up the system if the screen has been resized at any point during the session. The screen will go totally blank and the VM will be completely unresponsive to input.
It turns out it's possible to SSH into the system, and you can see that Xorg.bin is running at 100% CPU usage. As soon as I kill Xorg.bin, the SSH connection drops and the VM shuts down / reboots immediately.
This occurs with clean installs of Arch, openSUSE 13.2, openSUSE Factory, and I've noticed that someone posted this to the Debian mailing list as well (Bug #765490), so I'm assuming this problem affects every distribution.
This error occurs without open-vm-tools installed, so I'm pretty sure the problem is either in xf86-video-vmware or some other component of Xorg.
This problem does not exist before 1.16 as far as I can tell.
I'm not sure what other information I should provide.
