An issue may come up if you depend on Xorg for video on your host.
Xorg, as far as I know, doesn't support binding and unbinding of video
devices, so you will have issues exiting the VM and returning to Xorg.

The best solution is to get a cheap second video card if possible and
using that for the host.
