	Yes - that sucked.

	Ok - so the problem appears to be that we're not doing hardware
accelerated compositing.

	Yes; it'd make a nice win;

	I'm using an up to date RH 7.3, with XFree86-4.2.0-8, the xdpyinfo
claims I have the RENDER extension:

	RENDER version 0.2 opcode: 152, base error: 178

	I'm using gtk+ HEAD; I'll have a little dig further down - clearly this
should be using render for gdk_pixbuf_render_to_drawable_alpha,
