    I tried the same thing last night as a potential hack and had the same
    result -- the area outside the visible window is bogus.

    I think what we need to add to the flimage stuff is a
    flimage_display_to_pixmap(). It shouldn't be too hard to implement.
    I'll take a hack at it sometime in the next couple of days if major
    crises don't intervene (ha! dream on, dreamer!).
