This is probably GTK.

GTK Paint Background -> LCL paints background -> you paint background.

We can stop LCL, like you are trying to,  at least, I think it should 
work. I will have to double check. But I do not know of a way of 
stopping the GTK paint background. If double buffering were enabled you 
probably wouldn't even notice it but since it isn't...
