I made some progress understanding what's happening, at least on my
system.  Bisecting shows commit
56b0217c626349748c5cc6f2fbccfa6a905f75a4 to be the point at which
virt-viewer stops connecting to my VM.  After looking at that commit,
I was able to get virt-viewer to connect by adding listen='localhost'
to my VM's graphics element.  I'm afraid I haven't had time today to
dig into exactly what the effect of that patch is so I can't propose
an alternative.
