Yeah, this is a known issue with libgtk.  It gets very confused by being
abruptly disconnected from an X server (including machine B's X server
in your scenario).  Emacs is probably the only GTK-using application
that has the ability to attach to and detach from X servers, so don't
expect a fix. :-/

Emacs with ./configure --with-x-toolkit=no is very nice, and is fully
functional as an X application.  It's particularly nice if, like many of
us here, you don't care about having a tool bar or menu bar.
