Ah yes. As Lubos says, this is part of the spec for the stupid E
background pixmap thing. You have to do this or there are race
conditions or some other problem, I don't remember.

I think Owen is the only one I've heard claim to fully understand the
E background pixmap "protocol" and how to make it race-condition-free;
someone should really write it down, and maybe make it suck less in
the process. ;-)
