Issue Testing Xubuntu Dailies with Virtual Box

If you are testing our images currently you'll be finding issues with 
booting it.

As far as I know the situation is that vboxvideo isn't loaded and the 
boot will fail after the Try/Install Screen, leaving you with a flashing 

I have been <Host>F1 (RightCtrl as default) to vt4 then you can /startx/

It IS possible to then test the install testcase - _but please do not 
fail the livesession_ for the vbox issue for us - I will ignore 
livesession fails from vbox.

It appears that vmware works (at least for Lubuntu). Hardware testing 
should work still - at least I booted ok.

I have noted the same issue (vbox) while booting the Lubuntu and Ubuntu 
images in the last day or so.

To prove that what you are seeing is in fact this issue, from vt4 run

/loginctl seat-status seat0/ and look for /CanGraphical=no/
