A pretty simple (lazy) answer from VMware, I think ... They will have to
solve that issue anyway. This is the list of "officially supported host
systems" for Ubuntu and Suse (source:

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 SP1
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9 SP4
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9, 9 SP1, 9 SP2, 9 SP3
(Listed versions are also supported with no service pack.)
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 8, stock 2.4.19

openSUSE 10.3
openSUSE 10.2 (formerly known as SUSE Linux 10.2)
SUSE Linux 10.1
SUSE Linux 10
SUSE Linux 9.3
SUSE Linux 9.2, SP1)
SUSE Linux 9.1 — stock 2.6.4-52
SUSE Linux 9.0 — stock 2.4.21-99
SUSE Linux 8.2 — stock 2.4.20
Ubuntu Linux 7.04
Ubuntu Linux 6.10
Ubuntu Linux 6.06
Ubuntu Linux 5.10
Ubuntu Linux 5.04

Maybe its useful if someone can confirm that this issue is also present
on one of those distros. I would believe that is has no connection to
the distro, but to the kernel?
