Not a bug - most widgets _do_ need to redraw on focus in/out so the 
default GTK+ focus handlers queue a redraw. The code would have to
be duplicated in a dozen or so places in GTK+ otherwise, and in
most custom widgets. If you don't want that for your widget, you can

Logically, if you set the CAN_FOCUS flag on your widget, whether
it is a drawing area or not, you should draw a visual indication
of focus, otherwise, the user won't be able tell where the focus
is when your widget has the focus.
