Thank you both for confirming it's a virtualbox issue.

A workaround that seems ok is to switch the desktop environment:
I just switched from xfce4 to e17 and the problem is gone
(for a short amount of time?).

Otherwise: Which sid virtualization do you use for building/testing

I guess Xen would be very efficient. But is it a risk to run Xen (Dom0?)
on a production desktop machine? And I can run a "remote desktop" server
on a Xen instance to test GUI programs?

Cheers and Best Regards,
