I have been trying to troubleshoot this for a while now but I cannot find the solution. I have definitely pinpointed the problem but do not know how to fix this. I have both Linux Gentoo 64 and Windows 8.1 hosts for vmware workstation (latest) and also Gentoo 64 guests running on both hosts. About 10 months ago or so I started seeing that my Gentoo guests would freeze doing either logout, shutdown or reboot from any desktop Gnome or kde. If I switch to tty2, login and run the command reboot or shutdown -h now the guest vm does so immediately with no issue. All hosts and guests are ~arch and running systemd. If I uninstall open-vm-tools the problem immediately goes away but of course desktop does not auto resize anymore. I have also tried the proprietary vmware tools and the freezes are exactly the same.

Anyone experiencing this or have any clues?

There is some incompatibility with all other versions of xorg-server other than 1.15.2, downgrading to 1.15.2 solves the problem
