This is a bug in VMware on Linux (possibly Windows, too), triggered by something unusual DragonFly is doing. I've seen it on both 4.0.2 and 4.0.5.

Basically, VMware's console becomes extremely sluggish -- it can take minutes for keypresses to register or output to update. I've managed to reboot VMware under such a circumstance, and the slugishness continues into the boot phase and BIOS setup screen, which pretty much nails it as a VMware bug.

I've been chasing what in DF causes this for a couple weeks now, but to no avail.
