I observe the problem with cairo-knockout.py when the window is obscured
and then exposed - the obscured area does not get redrawn properly.
If the window is resized it is redrawn OK.

cairo-knockout.c draws to an offscreen pixmap, whereas
cairo-knockout.py draws directly to the gdk.Window
If I change cairo-knockout.py to draw to a gdk.Pixmap first and then
copy the pixmap to the gdk.Window it works OK.

So it looks like the bug is triggered by drawing direct to the display.
