XForms: Creating pixmaps

To subscribers of the xforms list from Dick Middleton <dick@sqf.hp.com> :

I'm drawing to a canvas which is on one tab of a tabbed folder. I want to do
draw the drawing in advance of the tab being selected so that it is displayed
quickly. Unfortunately the X routine XCreatePixmap needs a valid window
parameter and this precludes the pixmap being created before the window has
been mapped. It's a sort of catch 22.

Does anybody know if there is another way to do this?
