No issues on bare metal here, so it is probably a Virtualbox issue with 
their video drivers. I know that I've had sporadic experience with 
virtual machines and the Lowlatency kernel. Virtualbox is good for smoke 
testing or non-heavy tasks, but not good for using it as a daily driver.

To reiterate, what you ran into was probably a virtualbox issue.

Just my 2c.
