I'm still having the same problem with Virtualbox 5.2.2. I removed the pre-installed virtualbox modules but I never got Virtualbox 5.2 to work, so I went back to 5.1.30. I just installed 5.2.2 and it's the same problem as before. I get the login screen, but after logging in, it's a black screen for about 30 seconds, then it briefly flashes my background image, goes black again and I see the desktop icons. Trying to run a program pinned to the desktop runs the program, but the window manager is not working. I've tried logging in using software rendering, but it does the same thing.

Installing the 5.1.30 guest additions with 5.2.2 works though.
