I've added a 'DBL_BUFFER' variable to backend_gtk.py to switch on/off
double buffering for the GTK backend.
Switching off double buffering makes widget redraws flicker (as you'd
expect). I can't see how disabling double buffering has any value, or
how it could be useful when running python remotely, perhaps I'm wrong -
feel free to test it and let me know if it does have a use.
