I'm running a Debian (Gnome) distro on a VMWARE Workstation 12.

The linux syslogs are getting spammed with:

gnome-settings-daemon.desktop[1411]: context mismatch in svga_sampler_view_destroy

Anyone come across a solution for this?

Disable the "Accelerate 3D Graphic" option of the VM setting.  The VM should be powered off in order to disable this option.
