multiple windows when scrolling (Windows XP)

Bug Description

this is a bug that was reported to me by Michael Springer.

I have some problems with new inkscape devel versions. If I have a window over the drwaing area and I will scroll with the mouse wheel (it's equal, with or without SHIFT-key), the drawing area will be covered with many new windows. Please have a look to the screenshots.

Then I tried to find some help for this cause in the german inkscape forum. There was a User ~suv who told me, I should try to narrow the version, when this problem causes the first time and advised me to try to use the standard desktop theme for XP. The problem is not existend in version 10211 and causes from 10216 and all versions up.

10216 was the first build uploaded to modevia after the devlibs update (r22) of the gtkmm stack to GTK 2.22 and Glib 2.26

this happens with the Layers dialog, or Fill and Stroke, or Inkscape Properties dialog if they are undocked and floating. Dragging these dialogs does not cause a problem, but keeping them stationary and scrolling the Inkscape window beneath them causes the problem. Forcing a screen refresh by drawing something will remove the false images. It looks as though a screen refresh is _not_ being triggered during a scroll.

I am still seeing this problem in Windows XP, Inkscape rev 10938, devlibs rev 27. Am I missing something?

sorry, my devlibs was out of date and I didn't know it. With a new devlibs I can no longer reproduce this problem.
