Great job.

I can confirm, that gtk2.12 paints text faster (in some bechmarks
faster than gtk1).

I ran your test program, but it didn't give any sensible data. I had
to increase MaxDrawCount to at least 10 before seeing some good values.
So better increase this to 20.

gtk1: 49
gtk2 without double-buffering: 90
gtk2 with double-buffering: 123
qt: 220
