At any rate, I'm going through the 8042 code to try to pinpoint why interrupts seem to be getting dropped. But don't hold your breath...

Hm. Now I'm very puzzled...

When it freezes, I tried echoing characters (via a remote xterm) to the console (ttyv*)... even that fails.

I enabled the debug options to have the keyboard drivers report every keystroke to the syslog. Indeed, it stops seeing them. But it doesn't seem likely for an 8042 problem to affect the output as well...

I suspect, now, that something DF is doing is causing VMware to start ignoring it's console emulation. Unfortunately, that will be far more difficult to debug.
