frankly "badblocks" on a virtual disk image should dot what exactly?

what about read the output of "dmesg" and whereever Ubunto writes the 
global syslog at times where probles appear?

look in your systemlogs on the host and the virtual machine, in the best 
case the was only concurrency from other guests and you would see 
something like "[ 1985.288632] hrtimer: interrupt took 2895550 ns" or 
disk timouts in the guest

disk timeouts are happening here regulary when the host does it's weekly 
raid-check and the backup vm it's monthly rsync --checksums over 1 TB 
btrfs compressed data on a LUKS encryption layer at the same time

but that's not the production host
