This is actually part of a larger problem. When you draw to an offscreen
window using cairo we don't currently report damage events, because
there is no way to virtualize these drawing operations such that we can
track them.

In practice this is not really a problem since most cairo stuff is
modern, and modern widgets draw everything double buffered, and the
double buffering handling does generate damage events.

It might be possible to make the specific case of gdk_draw_layout() to
cause damage events with some work. What exactly is your usecase here?
Do you draw directly to the window or from an expose handler?
