except that i'm manually sending the widget an expose event.  note that
for some reason, gtk_widget_queue_draw() never worked properly for me,
and that's why i was manually sending an expose event.  anyway, i have
a bug open with gtk on this, and either i'll be able to come up with
a smaller test case, or in the process i'll find another way of doing
it that works properly (meanwhile, owen will be beating me over the head
with a cluestick).  hopefully this'll be resolved tonight or tomorrow,
in time for RC3.
