  Regardless of what the toolkit is, avoiding redrawing areas which have
not changed is often an important performance improvement.  I think you
should file a bug about your specific case on bugzilla.gnome.org.

  The pixmap theme engine itself is of course quite slow due to how it
works.  I would not recommend ever using any theme based on this engine.
