We had trouble with the latest QEMU 0.8.1 tree

QEMU window appeared but freezed immediately. This happened to both
32-bit and 64-bit hypervisors.

The root cause of this problem is in vnc-fixes patch. It removes
initialization of gui_timer (see below), which actually is used by
gui_update() in vl.c. Retaining these two statements will fix the
problem and QEMU can perform normally.

That's not the root cause because the gui_timer is obselete, or at
least it should be.

gui_update only calls display_state.dpy_refresh but the vnc-fixes
patch also changes vnc_update_client to call dpy_refresh and that gets
called from the vs->timer.

Could you check if somehow the vnc_update_client doesn't get called for you?
