I don't know if this will help, but you might want to have a look at the 
GTKGLArea widget (in the Gnome CVS, I believe), designed as an easy way to 
embed an OpenGL render into GTK.

I haven't used it in a while though.

Other things you might want to investigate are the usual GL things: look at 
what bit-depth you've requested, what you're getting, what kind of buffering 
scheme is happening (single, double, triple) etc, and exactly where this 
buffering is happening.  I believe tht GtkDrawingAreas have their own 
buffering scheme, so I suspect what might be happening is that you've got 
multiple double-buffering schemes blitting to each other in a slow and nasty 
mess.  Possibly involving sending bitmaps to and from the X server as well, 
for good measure.  But I could be completely wrong.

Good luck
