Default New gtk-vnc slower?

I have a collection of virtual machines that I use to test
cross-platform compatibility of some code I'm developing. Today, the
virtual machine I was working on kept getting slower and slower
whenever a window refresh was needed. It got to the point that
refreshing a terminal window was taking nearly half a second per line.
My eyes could easily track the refresh going on. Moving a window was
impossible, as I could see the entire window being redrawn, pixel by
pixel, and it would just keep going long after I had released the
mouse. Keys were repeating right and left, probably because of a
sequence like <KeyDown, refresh action that takes a really long time,
KeyUp>.

I shut everything down, logged out, and even rebooted, to see if it
was some weird behavior caused by a recent update that had only partly
taken effect. When I started my VM back up, it was very snappy. But
then, over time, it got a little slower and a little slower, until
eventually I was back to watching refreshes happen line by line again.

This never happened before today. I looked through the recent updates
my machine has received. All I can see that might be relevant was an
update to gtk-vnc-0.4.2-1.fc14.x86_64. The machine in question is a
quad-core Intel with 8GB of RAM and an Nvidia video card of some kind.
(Sorry, should have checked which one before leaving work.) The host
is fine; it's just the virtual machines I open with virt-manager that
are affected. I tried several, and they're all behaving like this
today, which argues for the problem being on the host side.

Is anybody else seeing this? Is there any other component besides
gtk-vnc that I should examine as a possible source of the slowdown?

Thanks,

VMs have been behaving like this for me in Rawhide at least for a while.
Ever since I went from F14 to Rawhide. Not sure about F14.

I'm seeing this too. Downgrading to gtk-vnc-0.4.1-6.fc14.1 fixes it
here.

I've filed a bug report about it:
