[gnome-love] Moving a window programmatically?

This isn't really GNOME/GTK elated I guess, but maybe you don't mind me
posting here anyway (in the end the code, if I can get it to work will
end up in a GNOME tool :-).

The following code doesn't do what I want. What am I doing wrong?

 #include <stdio.h>
 #include <libwnck/libwnck.h>
 #include <gtk/gtk.h>
 #include <X11/Xlib.h>
 main(int argc, char **argv)
     WnckScreen *scr;
     WnckWindow *win;
     int x, y, width, height;
     Display *disp = NULL;
     gtk_init(&argc, &argv);
     scr = wnck_screen_get_default();
     while(gtk_events_pending()) gtk_main_iteration();
     win = wnck_screen_get_active_window(scr);
     wnck_window_get_geometry(win, &x, &y, &width, &height);
     printf("Current geometry: %d,%d %dx%d\n", x, y, width, height);
     XMoveWindow(XOpenDisplay(NULL), wnck_window_get_xid(win), 100, 100);

The current window (the terminal where I run the compiled program)
stubbornly stays exactly where it is.
