That you should never call gtk_widget_size_allocate()? (Unless you
are implementing a container widget.)

An application, to change the size of a widget like a drawing
area would typically call gtk_widget_set_usize().

A widget, to change its own size, would call gtk_widget_queue_resize()
on itself, and then when the resize happened, respond to 
::size_request with the new desired size.
