  This may or may not be do-able.  I would like to plop an image onto the root display - a 'splash' of sorts - as a 'windowless' object.  I've so far been able to create the image, but am unable to display it.

  I am attempting to use XPutImage onto DefaultRootWindow(MyWidget) (where MyWidget is a working widget in my app).  The failure reported is that my GC is invalid.  (The GC was fine for creating the image - just not for displaying it.)

  Would you happen to have a code snippet on hand that you could share?  Or, alternatively, a suggestion where I might find such direction?

Thank you in advance!
