What I always do, which seems to always work :) , is in the expose_event
handler, do something like the following:

bool MyWidget::_on_expose_event(GdkEventExpose* event) {
    int x = get_allocation().get_x();
    int y = get_allocation().get_y();
    int width = get_allocation().get_width();
    int height = get_allocation().get_height();

And then use these variables in any functions in that expose event
handler, eg.

     get_style()->paint_shadow(get_window(), get_state(), Gtk::SHADOW_IN,
        Gdk::Rectangle(x, y, width, height),
        *this, Glib::ustring::ustring("viewport"), x, y, width, height);

Hope this helps
