  The clipping is -very- important because without it we overload the X 
server.  It makes Kst freeze repeatedly.  We have to paint in the order we're 
painting now otherwise we double the tree-walking and we get invalid 
geometries (since the objects aren't updated).

  Printing is a special case, it should not affect screen painting in any way.
