That's great. I think there are quite a bit of gdk drawing bits that are
actually just debris - I recently deleted gcs.c (hmm, well, I made it
entirely redundant, but it seems I didn't go through the make file stuff
so it is still there.)
So I think I could be very useful to you if I knew what the problem code
was. So, if you like, post up the problematic code and I can give an
opinion on whether it is needed, or if we can just delete it.
