I do something like:

Method A handles expose events, and redraws exposed rectangle from
internal pixmap.

Method B connected to value changed signal, draws to internal pixmap,
calls queue_draw() which eventually triggers Method A.

You can add efficiency by keeping track of the bounding box of what you
redraw, and only trigger expose events for those rectangles.
