Unity8 session doesn't start under Virtualbox

Bug Description

I've installed Ubuntu Xenial 16.04.1 under virtualbox, then added the stable-phone-overlay PPA, installed unity8-desktop-session and ran a dist-upgrade.

After rebooting, if I choose to login with the unity8 session and enter my password, after a few seconds (involving display mode changes) the screen gets back to the login screen.

I'm attaching the unity-system-compositor.log file.

I tried both with and without installing the VirtualBox guest additions, and the result is the same.
