Works for me, running qemu on a Solaris 9 x86 host and running 
a Solaris 10 x86 guest os.

Is that while a GUI (X11) is running in the QEMU emulator?
Which GUI, CDE or Gnome?  Which video card driver are you using
with the X11 server?

Is it perhaps the X11 screen saver, that is activated inside
the guest os after 15(?) minutes?.

Can you reproduce the problem on the text console, by choosing
"command line login" from the "options" menu in the initial
dtlogin login screen, logging in as user root (or some ordinary
user) on the text console?

The java virtual machine included in Solaris x86 does not work
for me.  When I start "java", I get:

    % java
    Error occurred during initialization of VM
Tracing system calls (actually tracing signals) using "truss -t!all java"
shows that the JVM gets a SIGSEGV signal when trying to access memory at
address 0x0000001F, and crashes with the internal error after that.  I'm
not sure if that's a bug in the java VM or a QEMU x86 CPU emulator bug.

Sometimes a working java VM is needed at Solaris x86 installation time.
For example with Solaris 10 x86, when you have a system with lots of memory,
then a gui installer written in java is used, but it crashes with the above
"InternalError" message.

The solaris admin console (smc) also needs a working java VM.
