A drawing area and a pixmap are actually the same thing on the GDK side:
a GdkDrawable. So this is probably not worth it.

It seems your frontend and your socket handle are separate processes, or
at least separate threads. In this case, you the problem comes from the back
that a connection to an X server can't be shared between two processes/threads.
Which means you can still use a multi-threaded X application, but that only
one thread should do the X operations.
