I filed a bug report http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=156330
which was ofc closed because I should update the ports tree (mine is
from November 2010); I will do this later in another VM.

To overcome the current problem I have just copied over the file
/etc/X11/xorg.conf from another VM where it was generated using the
VMware's driver in 8.x; it works just fine there in 9-CURRENT with the
x11-drivers/xf86-video-vmware driver in high res 1920x1200 and cut&paste
between the VM's and Win apps.
