This is what I always wanted to see in GTK+.
Today opaque resize is completely unusable on my Pentium 120, S3 V+, but
when I switch to Win95, difference is _very_ noticeable. I don't know if
Win9x toolkit uses backing pixmap, but opaque resize is _much_ faster.
The same goes for expose/redraw events.
So using offscreen drawing is definitely a very good idea:)
