I now have another question about the linux app ported to winxp. It's a
ticker app that reads then renders a text file to a pixmap (a tall
single-line image), then it kind of scrolls the pixmap by drawing a part
of it to a drawing_area, using gdk_draw_drawable() within a timeout
handler set by g_timeout_add().
The problem is it works fine on linux (the scrolling is really smooth)
but the win version is choppy and flickering and uses at least 90% of
cpu resources (vs 15% with linux.)
Does anyone have an clue? Is it related to some mingw config or threads
or drawing_area or gtk for win?
