X Window and GDK don't work the way you're expecting. There is no "memory" of
what you drew last time. Its up to your application to know how to
redraw the current state of the window at all times. If there are
existing lines/shapes/text to be shown, its up to your application to
remember this and draw them. X/GDK doesn't do this for you.
