MacBook Airs constantly freezing when using Thunderbolt VGA Adapter


In the past week or so, a large number of our 13" Mid-2013 MBAs have randomly started freezing when attached to a projector via Apple Thunderbolt to VGA video adapter. Before now, they've all been working fine, but a large number starting to have this issue at the same time makes me wonder if an update got pushed out causing an issue. Anyone else encountering similar issues?

I saw this a lot on 2011 MacBook Pros with the mini display port to VGA adapters. Does the issue resolve itself when you remove the adapter? Does a known-good adapter work properly? In my cases, I would just replace them under the computer's warranty and the new ones would work as expected. I suspect these adapters aren't really built to last.
