So, in short ... it's NOT a "catch up with mouse events" scenario at
all, as moving the PCI frame to the right as before has nearly the
same 8-10 second redraw all the rubber banded lines problems, and it
takes equally long to redraw it back original with "u" key for undo
... that is NOT a catch up with the mouse problem.

I think this relates to the "deferred redraw" thing I mentioned about
the lesstif hid. In this case, what's happening with the gtk hid is
that the view is being refreshed for EACH trace that gets moved. Even
at 30 FPS, for hundreds of traces that's many seconds to redraw.

If you want to take a stab at adding deferred refresh to the gtk hid,
it would be much appreciated.

That's probably the solution for one problem. It has a number of
others, all related to excessive lag in responsiveness, some of which
don't have to do with drawing .... like a huge lag when you take the
cursor off the view port to another window, and back. I suspect this
is a number of problems, that are additive, not a single quick kill
..... unless it's a single extra viewport update that got left in from
debugging a year ago.

There are too many other things that are broke, like the bounding box
problem on the back side, the lag on bounding box, arrow key
activities, and the like that all smell like this project was never
finished ... somebody quit in the middle of the port without doing a
good job of debug and checkout.

Your version works ... with some nits you are already aware of.

I think I'll go back to 050318 until you guys are finally done ... it
works just fine too, and I've grown skilled at using it's UI ... yours
has everything different ... from mouse actions, menus, pull downs, etc
.... and you don't seem done yet.
