This is quite likely a very old bug in Gtk+ that gets reported here
from time to time.
Gtk+ does not properly support connecting/disconnecting to multiple
X11 displays.

IMHO for people that normally use multiple displays and emacsclient
the best is to use the Lucid toolkit, otherwise you'll hit this
problem from time to time.
