Need help debugging Emacs: emacsclient will not draw its contents someti

Subject: Need help debugging Emacs: emacsclient will not draw its contents sometimes

I run into a bug daily but I can't pin down the exact source of the problem.

I can't reproduce the bug on demand, but if I use Emacs long enough,
eventually the bug will be triggered.

The scenario:

I run Emacs using the Emacs daemon. I regularly connect to the daemon
with emacsclient. Frequently, the client is started from an external
program, such as during a mercurial commit. _Sometimes the emacsclient
frame will not draw its contents_, leaving Emacs in a useless state.
This only occurs after the Emacs daemon has been running for hours and
has already successfully started many emacsclients. When this occurs,
my window manager shows that the program is running and has drawn an
outline of where Emacs should be, but there are no contents. After the
first occurrence, all new emacsclients will suffer the same fate and
will not draw their contents. To Emacs return to a useful state, I
restart the Emacs daemon. This means I lose the open buffers of my
currently running Emacs.

Unfortunately, as I can't reliably reproduce this on demand, it is
difficult and time consuming to tests different versions of init.el.

Emacs version:
GNU Emacs 24.5.1 (x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 3.16.2) of
2015-04-22 on buildhw-10.phx2.fedoraproject.org

I have attached a debugger to the running Emacs after this has
occurred. I see the following backtrace below.

Any help towards debugging this issue would be greatly appreciated.
Please let me know if there is a useful command I can run run to help
diagnose the issue.
