Sorry for going AWOL on you. Yes, the fix in 5.1.38-dfsg-
/locutusofborg-ppa/+packages produces an OVA that works and has
accelerated graphics in both VMware and VirtualBox.
One other thought in looking at how you fixed this: the notify-send
"VBoxClient: the VirtualBox kernel service is not running. Exiting." is
a bit distracting in VMware. I see in in looking at your updated
/etc/init.d/virtualbox-guest-utils that you have an in_virtual_machine
function to test if it's VirtualBox at all before probing for any kernel
services. Something similar would be welcome in /etc/X11/Xsession.d
