this is a known problem that only occurs with the Matrox driver.
It looks as if we are having cache problems here. The gfx card
is accessing the surface before the contents are actually flushed
to the framebuffer. This will be fixed as soon we find out how to 
fix it :-(

It definitely should. I don't have the X11 version of GTK+
installed separately so I can't test this here. Are you sure
it does not work?

I was speaking about projects using gtk+-directfb. The easiest
way to get the compiler and linker flags correctly is to use 
pkg-config and ask for gtk+-directfb-2.0.

I think we need a GTK+-DirectFB FAQ. I'll do one as soon as time
