I can't believe that putting my f/1.8 DX lens on an FX camera and shooting in FX mode is not going to get me the same DOF as a real FX lens. That defies all logic. All I then have to do is a bit of cropping in PP and voila I have the nice bokeh. Sure it's more work but I can set up a batch process. Or does the lens become say an f/2.8 on FX? Here is an example of the vignetting I'm getting.

You should believe it. How does it defy all logic? If you shoot a FF sensor in DX mode you are shooting on an APS-C sized area of the sensor.

No, I said shooting in FX mode. Does the lens become F/2.8 in FX mode? Sorry, I don't understand this well enough to know otherwise.
