As I pointed out to you on IRC, you can't use CopyFromParent for the
window depth/visual because you want to use a different depth/visual
than the root window's. Why did you post here without at least fixing

After you left, Daniel Stone mentioned there being more questionable
things about the code, but I haven't looked beyond the above.
