I'm not sure it is the cause of the problem, but using adding a new
widget to the hierarchy for every image seems like a wrong approach. A
better way would be to use Cairo to draw the pixbufs directly in the
draw event of a widget, for example a GtkDrawingArea.

This would require some rewriting of the code, but you gain a lot of
flexibility, like e.g. the possibility for crossfading. Make sure you
don't actually load the pixbuf in the draw(expose) event, but only do
the gdk_cairo_set_source_pixbuf(), cairo_paint() there.
