I have encountered this problem on Ubuntu Bionic (running in VMWare
Fusion) with Chrome latest open. Chrome will start drawing the page
randomly (I've seen that on really old versions of Chrome on Mac). When
it starts doing that I can lock-up my OS by doing a `killall chrome`
from terminal. When I do that, I can still move my mouse, but clicking
doesn't register. I end up having to reboot my VM.

Bug description:
  First thing I notice is that the mouse cursor freezes as I'm using it,
  then I hit the CAPS LOCK key and the LED indicator doesn't respond.
  Then I try the "REISUB" command, but it doesn't do anything either.
  Only a hard reset works, pressing down the power button for a few

  How to reproduce?
  I couldn't figure out a consistent method. It is still random to me.

  Version: Ubuntu 4.18.0-10.11-generic 4.18.12
  System information attached.

  Also happens under Arch Linux and Fedora.
  I've talked to another user on IRC who seems to be having the same freezes.
