If your program worked with 1.2.3 and doesn't work with
1.2.4, then its a bug. (We are still actually struggling
a bit with gtkwindow.c and will put out a 1.2.5 shortly).

Code that demonstrates the problem here would be much 


[ That being said, there are much better ways of making
  pixmaps than prematurely showing your toplevel windows.
  At minimum you should use gtk_widget_realize() instead
  of gtk_widget_show() so that the user doesn't see the
  window at the wrong size. But, even better, use
  gdk_pixmap_colormap_create_from_xpm[_d] () and 
  gtk_widget_get_colormap(). ]
