VirtualBox can use the .vmdk images our build system creates directly,

I had the very same problem with Ubuntu and VMware - it just stopped 
working from one minute to the other (there was not even a reboot 
necessary). Since I had no luck getting it to run again whatsoever, I 
used VirtualBox from then on :-)
I now have openSUSE on that laptop, and VMware is running fine again.
