Yes, the function attached is run in a thread, which returns the
context via context_pointer, and another thread draws on that.

Strangely, DamageNotify and even DestroyNotify events only arrive when
the window gets focus, not until then.  For example, I send a
DestroyNotify from the other thread, but the window won't be destroyed
until it gets focus.
