This code snippet is run in an expose event handler? Otherwise it is
not surprising that it doesn't work since you must not draw outside an
expose event handler.  If that is not the problem and you are drawing
from an expose event handler, does your code take widget->allocation.x
and widget->allocation.y into account?

In general, it would help to show a little more of your code if you
want us to help you.
