The handling of expose events is pretty much essential to get
any drawing going; when a window is newly mapped, no drawing
will be done until an expose event is received. In some other
situations, GDK may generate expose events itself without
intervention from the backend, so I'd expect some stuff to draw 
even without backend event handling. But it's not going to
work very well.

Once you add expose events, if it still isn't drawing anything,
the next thing you'd probably want to look at is the double
buffering code ... if your "draw_drawable" function isn't
working or pixmaps aren't working, nothing is going to get
to the screen. (There is a #define in gdkwindow.c that
turning on may get GDK to partially limp along without
double buffering.)
