Now I've got moving rectangular! But some comments are still nessesary.

So drawing area is my choice. I really need some dynamics.

Well. I understand. But is the return value of my_idle function the only 
mechanism to stop calling it? Can I set some timer to call idle function one 
time per call_period?

Yes this works. Thank you very much! This really helped. For now I can 
program, but Are there better ways to do such drawings?

Just to understand what I am doing: The gdk_draw function used instead of 
gtk_* because the drawing area is the X window. And so we need some X lib 
functions (gdk wrapers) to draw on it. Am I right?

Thank you in advance,

P.S. Is this mailing list the right place for questions about gtk+ 
programming, or there are better lists to ask? Sorry If I was wrong.
