Pixmap theme, caching and gnome-pixmaps

The problems people have been having with *Bad Window*
errors and pixmap themes seem to be occurring because
of mistakes in the way that gnome-pixmap is handling
Imlib images. (Well, actually, they are occurring because
of mistakes in the design of imlib...)

To be specific, gnome-pixmap widget calls 
gdk_imlib_move_pixmap() and gdk_imlib_move_mask(), then

If no caching is enabled, then this works pretty
much as expected - the pixmaps and masks are dissociated
from the image and the imlib data structures are cleaned

If caching is enabled, then bad things happen. move_pixmap()
and move_mask() leave the pixmaps in the cache; the
destroy_image() drops the refcount of the pixmaps to 
zero, and when the cache gets full, the pixmaps are

The following patch fixes things up, but is a rather
inefficient, since it puts every pixmap in GNOME through
a extra copy. I'm not really sure how to do this
better - I'll ask Raster about it when he gets back
from Germany.
