Just have them running, or using the virt-viewer and virt-manager
to look at them as well?
May be the same problem I'm having here:
Many things would freeze my display, but virt-viewer seemed to
provoke it much more frequently. I've now switched from radeon
to radeonhd and disabled many video accelerations with options
in the xorg.conf file and I haven't crashed in a long time.
Here's the relevant bit of my xorg.conf:
Option "DRI" "off"
Option "AccelMethod" "shadowfb"
Option "UnverifiedFeatures" "off"
I also have to specify nomodeset on the kernel options
