the problem is this ... when a GtkWidget ends up using XMoveWindow to
reset the "origin" for the visible part of itself, and then follows up
with a redraw of the entire window contents, these two things happen
asynchronously. The XServer takes care of the window move, then the
client redraws. Many (all?) of the existing GtkWidgets that one might
use for this sort of thing all gdk_move_window() to do the origin move,
and are thus subject to this problem.

What is actually needed for this purpose is just a widget which
differentiates between:
       * scroll
       * zoom with constant window origin coordinates
       * zoom with constant non-origin focus

right now, too many of them take the easy way out, and do the third case
as a combination of the first and second. on X Window, this always
results in a double draw of the window.
