Have you the lot of trouble with gnome update on archj mailing list?!
So for me no problem under openbox or plasma. i do not understand the related problem with gnome and systemd for themes but apparently exist big_smile

Well I can confirm that the 4.5.0-1 kernel + dkms virtualbox from arch do have this problem even in a systemd free system. The kernel param iomem=relaxed is a workaround.

Got the same problem now with i686 (kernel 4.5.1.1), kernel param iomem=relaxed helps.
