I have now. :) Thank you.

So a flushGraphics on the NSGC realizes the changes. Shouldn't Cairo  
being doing this though? At *least* as part of it's own flush()  
function. Though I'd like to not have to litter my drawing sequences  
with well intentioned flushes, since I was shooting for xplatform  
here, and I don't have to do that for Win/Xlib.

For now, this gives me something I can use to do prototyping.
