Well virt_viewer_window_show() merely calls gtk_window_show()
which just unhides the window, but does not guarantee that the
user can actually see it. Per the docs gtk_window_present()
does more, ensuring the window is actually visible to the user

" Presents a window to the user. This may mean raising the
  window in the stacking order, deiconifying it, moving it
  to the current desktop, and/or giving it the keyboard focus,
  possibly dependent on the user's platform, window manager,
  and preferences. "

so I don't think we should be removing this

Looking the problem description, I'm not convinced that the
gtk_window_present() is the root cause of the problem, but
rather just something that highlights a problem that exists
