That's a lot of overkill :)  You can simply do

get_absolute_position (GtkWidget *widget, int *ret_x, int *ret_y)
  GdkWindow *parent;
  int parent_x, parent_y;

  parent = gtk_widget_get_parent_window (widget);
  gdk_window_get_origin (parent, &parent_x, &parent_y);

  *ret_x = parent_x + widget->allocation.x;
  *ret_y = parent_y + widget->allocation.y;
