emacs crashes x windows session

With Fedora 27 mate.

I am able to crash my login session by doing simple scrolling operations in emacs. The .xsession-errors make little sense.

               vmware-user: could not open /proc/fs/vmblock/dev

               SELinux Troubleshooter: Applet requires SELinux be enabled to run

I did not install vmware and SELinux is disabled. Can easily reproduce by editing any file that has multiple pages and scrolling via line or page keys. This behavior started after a number of large dnf updates. Tried building emacs from source with same results. gedit work ok.
