it's a bug.
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.
