Probably you didn't select SubstructureNotify on the parent.
(CreateNotify is about notifying windows about new child windows, not
about informing a window of its own creation, which would be very odd
(yeah, I know Win32 does this. Win32 is very odd)).

See http://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/doc/xorg-docs/plain/hardcopy/XProtocol/proto.PS.gz
for details.
